Title: Africa [Southern Sheet]
Map Maker: Joseph Hutchins Colton
Place / Date: New York / 1849
Interesting map of Southern Africa and Madagascar, covering the region from Zanzibar and Lower Guinea to Cape Colony. A large Unrecorded Area appears in the interior, with several annotations and early information for the region. Many placenames, rivers, lakes, mountains, etc. appear. Unusually detailed for the period. Decorative border. A terrific regional map, from JH Colton, one of the most prolific American mapmakers of the mid-19th Century.
