A very unusual wall chart presenting a graphic representation of world history. Each culture is shown as a river with the names of major events and rulers as place names along the river's course. Empires are depicted as large lakes. A fascinating chart with the title engraved onto the surface of a globe, surrounded in clouds. Linen backed with original rollers.
A few cracks in lower part of map, otherwise very good.
