A handsome mid-nineteenth century map showing the course of the Nile continued in an inset with the notation "the dotted part of the River is very little known." The map is filled with information on mines, ruins, caravan routes, and plantations. Key provides a translation of the Arabic terms.
Pleasant tongin with slight oxidation to original color.
