A classic, dramatic and fine engraving for the continent at the turn of the century. A crisp, recognizable coastline gives way to some substance and much speculation. Prominently includes two large lakes that are thought to be the source of the Nile, which traces back to early Ptolemaic geographies. Also includes numerous rivers through the Sahara.
Condition is good with some light foxing top and left, and some old centerfold repairs toward the bottom verso. Typical close margins. Image size is approximately 14.5 x 16.75 (inches).
