Blank outline maps and more

We have developed three essential, high-quality, blank outline maps to accompany Part 1 and Part 2 of the Student's Friend, a concise narrative of world history that is available free on this website. Click here.

Two maps are available for Part 1

(prehistory to 1500):

-Map of the world without political boundaries.

-Map of the Eastern Hemisphere without political boundaries.  Rivers associated with early river valley civilizations are shown.


One map is available for Part 2

(1500 to the present):

Directions: The above maps are in pdf format.  When printing, you might wish to set your printer to landscape format, high-quality print mode, and 100% size to produce high-quality masters for making student copies.  

These are high-resolution maps with large file sizes that might take some time to download depending on your connection speed.
