This handsome small map of Africa is filled with spurious cartography, including a depiction of the Nile River originating from two large lakes south of the equator. It is based on Sanson's pocket atlas map and includes a considerable amount of information for such a small map.
A crisp impression issued folding with a hint of toning and a couple of tiny worm tracks in the top blank margin.
