Your map graphic appears to be in the Winkel Tripel map projection. I would
also suggest that it is using Oswald Winkel's original selection of 50.46667
degrees as the Special Parallel.
Note that by the 1950s John Bartholomew was using a special parallel of 40
degrees for his version of the Tripel, giving his graphic a more flattened
appearance in the Y direction.
