Superb large map with incredible detail along the course of the Nile River. At the confluence of the White and Blue Nile Homann depicts a huge series of cataracts. Nearly a third of the map is engraved with fascinating scenes of the rapids, pyramids, various antiquities, scenes of embalming and ancient furnaces. Original full color with uncolored scenes.
Damp stain in upper left corner, just entering map and a small stain in bottom border. Map itself is very good with a sharp impression.
