Single Click to Enlarge/Reduce
Antique uncolored comparative map displaying the heights of the known waterfalls and length of known rivers of the world. Published in 1846 by Jean-Denis Barbie du Bocage. Note that the Nile, which is now known as the longest river, has a series of dots with a question mark, indicating that they had not yet found the headwater and therefore did not know the river's length. Good to very good antique condition with minor light foxing throughout and folds at lower corners. approx. 9.5 x 12.25 inches to the edge of the printed area
