Comparative Maps
Hand colored antique comparative map, showing the comparative lengths of rivers and heights of mountains for each continent (except Australia). At this time Mount Everest's height had been calculated and the source of the Nile had been identified but was currently under dispute. Lake Victoria was found by Europeans in 1858 but not confirmed as the source of the Nile until 1875. Good antique condition with some spots and minor water stains, slight seam separation in margin, as well as light overall toning, and small tear. Approx. 23" x 17" to the neatline. Priced as-is.
