This is an authentic, antique lithograph map of Africa by Samuel Augustus Mitchell Jr. The map was published in Philadelphia as part of Mitchell's New General Atlas of 1862. It shows the African continent during the time of some of its most active exploration by Europeans. At the time of this map’s publication, there was still a large region labeled “Unexplored Interior.” Geo-political divisions, important travel routes, river systems, towns, and cities are noted throughout. The map is surrounded by an elaborate floral boarder that distinguished Mitchell’s works from other map makers of his era.
Condition: Map is in A condition showing a fine printing with bold original color on clean paper.
