The firm of George Philip and Son was established in Liverpool in 1834, later moving to London. They were one of the largest firms of cartographers in Britain. In addition to producing their own maps they made maps for a number of other publishers including the Daily Mail. Philip’s maps show some of the most innovative and newest, as opposed to repurposed, mapping of the war. Unlike many of their competitors they have a number of maps which show the frontline rather than just the pre-existing topography. Together with the maps produced for the Daily Mail they are one of the more prolific map producers of World War One.
