Edward Stanford (1827-1904) was a prominent British mapmaker and publisher. He was member of the Royal Geographical Society and in 1857 founded his namesake Geographical Establishment with Trelawney William Saunders (1821-1910) and Alexander Keith Johnston (1804-1871) as engravers. Thereafter, Stanford was known for his “library maps”, particularly those of Africa and Asia. By 1881 he employed 87 people at his premises, the business survived him, and the Stanford’s shop is still a prominent London landmark today. This is a map of the Theater of War in China, Korea, Japan, extending to the Philippines. Focusing on the legend one can see the map is obviously political with 'Treaty ports' in a circle. The railway lines and submarine cables are also depicted, as are the The Great Wall, Barrier of Stakes or Palisade, among other boundaries.
