EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a 19th-century British Empire world map, offering a glimpse into the vastness and influence of the empire during that era. The distinctive pink shade represents the territories under British rule, while five intricate illustrations depict the indigenous peoples from different regions across the globe. From Australia to North America, southern Africa to Europe and Asia, these illustrations beautifully capture the diversity of cultures within the empire. Accompanying tables provide fascinating statistics on both land area and population, revealing that this expansive empire covered over 7 million square miles and governed nearly 165 million people. The map also highlights significant years of acquisition, shedding light on key moments in history when new territories were added to Britain's dominion. Created by Scottish cartographer John Bartholomew in the late 1850s, this masterpiece of cartography is not only an artistic representation but also a valuable historical artifact. Notably, it includes David Livingstone's route through Africa in 1856 – a testament to Scotland's contribution to exploration during this time. As we delve into this image, we are transported back to an age where imperial powers shaped global landscapes. It serves as a reminder of Britain's extensive reach and its impact on diverse societies around the world. This remarkable artwork invites us to reflect upon our shared human history and appreciate both cultural differences and commonalities across continents.
