1903 JUTA'S MAP OF SOUTH AFRICA FROM THE CAPE TO THE ZAMBESI Folding Wall Map. 1903 "JUTA'S MAP OF SOUTH AFRICA FROM THE CAPE TO THE ZAMBESI Compiled from the best available Colonal and Imperial Information INCLUDING THE OFFICIAL CAPE COLONY MAP BY THE SURVEYOR GENERAL, CAPE TOWN" Published by J. Fine map of central and southern Africa from the period of the Second Boer War. The map, though prepared for a commercial audience, was part of a larger effort to map southern Africa in order to aid the British war effort. This effort provided the foundation for the intensive mapping of British holdings in southern Africa after the Second Boer War.

The map depicts the Boer territories of southern Africa, including the Orange Free State, the South African Republic, and the Natal. The British Cape Colony is to the south. Other territories are identified by the names of local peoples such as Mossamedes and Bartose Mabunda Country in the central region, Zululand to the east, and Khama's Land, Great Namaqualand, and Damaraland in the west. The map is quite detailed, naming many regions and identifying ethnographic, topographical, and environmental features. These include the Kalahari Desert and the Cape of Good Hope. Politically, it also shows the German areas of colonial control in the northwest, in addition to the Boer Republics in the central and eastern portions of southern Africa. The map is bordered by a neatline identifying latitude and longitude, while the title of the map appears in bolded letters in the bottom-left corner. A note below the neatline explains that, while originally prepared by the South African firm Juta, it was also published in London by Edward Stanford. Size approx 132cm x 94.5cm, dissected and laid onto linen and with original case with titled label. We are happy to travel almost anywhere in the world for the right opportunities.
