Africa.

(Africa Continent).

Issued 1807, London by Longman, Hurst, Rees & Orne. Drawn under the direction of Mr. Arrowsmith.

Interesting early 19th century engraved map, with lovely hand color.

Of note for the vast unbroken apocryphal chain "Mountains of the Moon" seen cutting across the entire center of the continent. Most of the interior is empty and devoid of topographical detail.

Nice looking example, pleasing age patina, any minor age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.

Original centerfold.

Sheet Measures c. 11 1/4"H x 16 5/8"W.

Engraved Area Measures c. 10"H x 13"W.
