Fascinating and stunningly detailed antique engraved map with original hand color. Hundreds of places names rarely seen at this level at this time displaying this assortment of Colonial Rule. The Colonial territories are shown in transitional political forms unique to the era. Note the early flag view of Brazzaville at lower left, seemingly engraved by the head of a microscopic pin. Small shield at middle right.
Attractive antique map with a charming vignette view.
As originally issued long ago, an actual antique/ vintage printed sheet of paper, not a modern copy or reprint.
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.
The paper sheet could show minor signs of age, but if we are offering it for sale, you can be 100% certain it is entirely worthy of ownership by even the most discerning collector or dealer.
Great 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 1/2 " x 11 " .
Printed area measures c. 8" x 12" W
