(Africa, Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Lower Egypt Nile Delta inset, St Helena Island inset)
Issued 1894, Phila by S.A. Mitchell
Very interesting antique lithographed map, with original full hand color.
Of note for the near profusion of interior details, snap shot into late 19th century development of the continent cartographically as well as pertaining to Colonial Powers and their possessions at this time.
As originally issued long ago, an actual antique/ vintage printed sheet of paper more than 100 years old, not a modern copy or reprint of a map.
Sheet remains well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so minor flaws to paper unworthy of specific mention are sometimes to be expected. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling, all of which is hopefully visible within the pictures. Couple minor wrinkles at bottom edge.
Paper and image remains overall clean & sound. Old maps & prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price. If the map has a fold-line down the middle, it is original to the map.
Attractive and desirable old vintage antique map entirely worthy of hanging for display.
A cartographic depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
Sheet measures c. 15" x 24 3/8" .
Printed area measures c. 13" x 18 3/4"
