In “The Artisanal Map, 1750-1815” by Martin Bruckner he often uses the word Imperial to talk about materials from Europe specifically England.

According to Google the definition of Imperial is “relating to an empire”. However, another interesting definition they also have is “(of a size of paper) measuring roughly 762 x 559 mm (30 x 22 inches)”.
