DATA VISUALISATION – POPULATION: ارض اوزرنده كى نفوس بشرك… [Population of the Earth…]


Out of stock


An attractive small lithograph in Ottoman language represents the population of various countries of the world. The pink circles depict the population of Europe (the largest nations are the Russians, Germans and Austro-Hungarians), the green circles Asia (with China, the The Commonwealth of Nations / India and Japan on the first three places), the orange circles Afrika, the blue ones America and the yellow ones Australia.

The chart was probably made shortly before or during WWI, as it mentions Austro-Hungary and Serbia, before joining in Yugoslavia with the other nations.

Our example comes from a privately assembled atlas, composed of maps from shorty before and from shortly after WWI.
