1943 Gill Pictorial Map of the World Promoting the WWII Atlantic Charter. WE SELL ONLY ORIGINAL ANTIQUE MAPS - NOT REPRODUCTIONS. Title: The'Time and Tide' Map of The Atlantic Charter. Description: This is a 1942 MacDonald Gill pictorial map of the world celebrating the announcement of the Atlantic Charter, a statement of joint American and British goals for the world after the end of World War II.
The map depicts the world using Gall's stereographic projection and places Europe and Africa at center with the Americas to the left and Asia to the right. Pictorial symbols are used to highlight the resources available in the countries of the world, giving the map an air of strategic importance, since natural resources were going to be key in the global conflict that was raging at the time of this map's production. Circular vignettes provide windows into the daily lives of people from all over the world, including a Canadian lumberjack, an American farmer, an Arabian trader, and an Australian rancher. Countries the world over are labeled, as are myriad cities and towns, some with banners, others by simple text.
The text of the Atlantic Charter is included along the top of the map, proclaiming the eight points agreed upon by President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill, with their signatures appearing at the end. These were real signatures that appeared on the original copy of this work, written on slips of paper and attached before printing. A short declaration opened the Charter with the eight points following. This'explanation' appears here along the right border and is attached to the Charter by a ribbon. The Charter is printed here verbatim, just as it was issued by Roosevelt and Churchill.
Five other quotations appear around the map, from such respected figures as Cicero, Aristotle, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. An illustration in the lower left corner depicts a man in the foreground'beating' armaments, such as field guns and tanks, into plowshares, for the farmer who appears in the background. The Atlantic Charter was a joint statement made by U. Prime Minister Winston Churchill concerning the goals of both their governments for a post-war world.Roosevelt and Churchill discussed the Charter during the Atlantic Conference in Placentia Bay, Newfoundland, which took place between August 9th and 12th, which also happens to be the first time Churchill and Roosevelt met in person. Issued on August 14, 1941 from U. Naval Base Argentia, the Atlantic Charter was a statement, meaning that there was no formal, legal document called'The Atlantic Charter'. When it was first released, the formal title of the statement was'Joint Declaration by the President and the Prime Minister', or simply the'Joint Declaration'.
The Daily Herald , a London newspaper, coined the term'Atlantic Charter', but it was not until Churchill used it in Parliament on August 24, 1941 that it gained popular use. Impact of The Atlantic Charter. The Atlantic Charter was seen as a basis for a just and peaceful world. Once the United States entered the war four months later, the Charter was seen as a statement of Allied war aims.Its focus on self-determination for the people of the world caused particular consternation among the world's colonial powers. Some have pointed to this tenet as one of the factors that led to the wave of decolonization in the 1950s and 1960s. In its eighth point, the Charter calls for the creation of international organizations, and on January 3, 1942, twenty-six nations signed a'Joint Declaration of the United Nations' endorsing the Charter's aims.
This, and the Charter more broadly, inspired the creation of organizations such as the UN, NATO, and international trade organizations. Time and Tide was a British weekly political and literary review magazine. Founded by Margaret, Lady Rhondda in 1920 and appearing through 1986, the magazine began as a supporter of left wing and feminist policies and served as the mouthpiece of the feminist Six Point Group.Over the course of its existence, the content of the magazine moved to the political right as the views of its owner changed. Several prominent literary figures published work in the magazine, with C. Lawrence, George Bernard Shaw, and Virginia Woolf among its contributors.
After Lady Rhondda died in 1958, control passed to Rev Timothy Beaumont and John Thompson in 1960. This map was created by MacDonald Gill for the magazine'Time and Tide'.
