Wall sized color map of the world, 75 x 106cm, 2 inset maps, closed holes and closed tears at folds have been repaired with archival washi on the verso, overall very good condition, clean and bright.

Published on October 22, 1941, this map served as a supplement to the Asahi Nenkan (the Asahi Almanac) for 1942. The main map provides a global view with Japan at the center. Two lower inset maps focus on the Atlantic and European fronts in 1940 and 1941. The first is titled "A battle map of Europe, North Africa, and West Asia," marking battlefields and battle dates among Germany, Britain, and France. The second, titled "The situation diagram of the battle in the Atlantic Ocean," illustrates areas under German control. At this stage, the war in Europe clearly favored the Axis powers, particularly Germany and Italy, as they expanded their occupied territories.
