Original antique map of Africa. This authentic large double page vintage map of Africa comes from The Royal Atlas of Modern Geography by Alexander Keith Johnston geographer to the Queen for Scotland.
Published by William Blackwood and Sons in London 1861 First edition. This is a very important map due to the fact of the "last minute" inclusion of a separate small, detailed insert onto the map which can be seen in the area around Lake Victoria. 1861 was a time period of much African exploration especially to locate the source of the Nile River. The much heated Specke and Burton rivalry was bring fresh geographic information from the heart of Africa. The small flap of paper you see attached to this map has much of that latest detail while it sits over much less detail on the foundation page.
A true piece of African Continent exploration history. The total paper size for this map is approximately 24" x 19".Remarkably detailed geographic information of the time period. This atlas was one of the best world atlases published in England in the second half of the 19th century. This map has a mixture of hand colored outline and printed blue color for water. A fine addition to any collection or a beautiful Africa antique map gift.
All maps come with a beautiful Certificate of Authenticity suitable for display with no pricing information (great for gifting). Also, when available, a copy of the title and contents page from the atlas the map came from. Our experience has shown that these large diameter tubes and loose rolling leave no paper memory.
