ww1 octopus map prussia war

En 1788 Mirabeau disait deja: “La Guerre est l’Industrie Nationale de la Prusse”

Striking French propaganda map, a very rare reduced version of Maurice Neumont’s poster showing Germany as a monstrous octopus threatening Europe with tentacles extending not only west to France, England, Spain and Italy, but to the Balkans and Greece, Turkey and Asia Minor, Romania and Russia. Germany is shown in different shadings of red, indicating its numerous annexations of surrounding territory since 1740, the most recent being the 1871 seizure of Alsace-Lorraine during the Franco-Prussian War making a comparison between the territorial conquest made in France since the outbreak of First World War.
The map was drawn by Parisian artist Maurice Neumont (1868-1930) for “La Conference au Village contre la Propagande ennemie en France” The Conference was established in 1917 for the purpose of advancing the patriotic cause in rural and provincial France by distributing more effective propaganda and countering similar German efforts. Published in Paris in 1917-18 at P.J Gallais.

Lumen Historiarum per Occidentem

Fine map that covers most of Europe, the western Mediterranean Sea and the adjacent African coast. Frans van Haren (more commonly called Haraeus) was a theologian, historian, globe maker and mapmaker from around 1615 to 1624. He prepared two maps centered on the Mediterranean Sea for Ortelius’ classical atlas that described the world known to the ancients. The map is surrounded with columns of text with an alphabetical listing of place names occurring in the bible and other holy writings. From the 1624 final edition by Balthasar Moretus of the first historical atlas ever published. Ortelius’s Parergon began as a companion to his Theatrum but eventually it became an independent work. In fact, this collection of maps of the ancient world was so significant that it became the model for all historical atlases published throughout the seventeenth century.

So wollten unsere Feinde Europa gestalten

Interessante documento storico edito nel 1916 dal Wiener Zeitung, che mostra quale dovrebbe essere il nuovo ordine in Europa dopo la vittoria degli Alleati. Il volantino facendo riferimento a fonti francesi secondo le quali l’Impero Austro-Ungarico dovrebbe essere sconfitto descrive i nuovi ipotetici confini: l’Alto Adige, la Carinzia sud-occidentale, la Slovenia e l’Istria sono assegnate all’Italia, il Tirolo del nord alla Svizzera mentre la Boemia, così come come l’Ungheria, con la Transilvania, diventano nazioni autonome.
Le nuove divisioni territoriali immaginate prima della fine della Guerra si dimostrarono, una volta finito il conflitto, leggermente diverse.
La carta è arricchita in alto dalle illustrazioni di un sommergibile e di un aereo a ricordare i mezzi militari a disposizione degli Alleati.
