This is a charming small map of the continent with a plethora of islands in the Indian Ocean. The Nile shows its correct source in the Abyssinia highlands; however, the twin lakes of Zaire and Zaflan are still faintly engraved just north of the Luna Mts, and several other spurious lakes are faintly engraved in the Sahara region.
