Title: (Congo) Congo Belge
Mapmaker: Thiriar, James
Published: 1958

(Congo) Congo Belge

James Thiriar was a Belgian mapmaker and artist who was injured in WWI and was relocated to London. He continued to do maps for the front lines and sketches of soldiers. Later starting a magazine for soldiers, but also diversifying into theatre work of stage and costume design.

Later in the 1930's he was part of an expedition to the interior of the Congo and did artwork for the endeavor, later working on the flora and fauna sketches for other central African expeditions.

This amazing map while titled for the "Belgian" Congo really doesn't focus on any European colonial presence, but just looks at the diversity of native life, culture and location, as well as the amazing wildlife. Notes towns, drainages, points of interest, and is surrounded with a stunning decorative border of masks and native peoples.

Condition is very good with bright color. Size is approximately 20.5 x 18.25 (inches)
