This tremendous folding map of the Pacific Ocean and adjacent continents provides a comprehensive overview of the geopolitical situation in the late 1930’s or 1940. A web of transportation routes emphasizes the accessibility (albeit over vast distances) of the region, and the publication was likely intended for a tourist audience. Various nations (or their colonial possessions) are highlighted in vibrant color, with the various mandates outlined in bright red.

Over twenty separate islands or groups are numbered within the image and shown in enlarged detail via inset maps on the right side of the sheet. Japan, the Malay States, Singapore, and Hong Kong are also depicted. Published in Sydney by H.E.C. Robinson.
