SOLD
Luftwaffe Navigationskarte In Merkatorprojektion. Approx. 73 x 110cm. 1 : 2000 000. Published by the Reich Air Ministry in 1938. Printed by Berlin Lithographic Institute. Large navigation map showing most of the British Isles, the English Channel, France, Belgium, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Switzerland, parts of Spain and Italy, Denmark, Germany etc. Two Luftwaffe eagles printed along the top edge of the sheet. Printed on some form of coated/glazed paper but has also been covered to the reverse with some form of 'sticky back plastic' type coating. It is unclear as to whether this is original or more recent but it has evidently been on for many years. The map is crumpled in places and has some marking and a small burn (?) spot (see photos). The reverse has yellowy orange staining. Despite this the map remains an impressive display piece. Nice to find with the Luftwaffe/swastikas still in place as many were removed postwar. Reasonable - quite good overall condition. Stock code P18080.
