This handsome map is based on the work of the important French cartographer Guillaume Delisle. It is a very detailed and fascinating map of northeastern Africa, the Red Sea and the Arabian Peninsula showing the political divisions and kingdoms. The Nile originates in the mountains near the L. de Dambee.
Expert repairs on centerfold and a nearly invisible 6" tear near distance scales. Some faint uneven toning.
