Antique hand colored map of Africa. Shows some topographical detail, including the legendary Mountains of The Moon- the supposed source of the Nile River. Includes Madagascar. Much of Central Africa is unlabeled, as little was known at that time (Map published in 1817.) Good condition with some toning/foxing of the antique paper, as well as some heavy pencil markings. By A. Arrowsmith, in A New General Atlas, 1817. Measures approximately 8" x 10" to the neatline.
