Historical notes and dates appear throughout, except in southern Africa, which shows only rivers. This would make a nice companion piece to Plates 12 & 13, showing Africa between the 8th and 14th centuries, and again since the beginning of the 15th century. Relief is shown by hachures, and the finely engraved detail throughout exhibits the exquisite craftsmanship for which the Perthes firm is best known. Justus Perthes published the map as plate number 11 in Dr. Karl von Spruner's 1855 Historisch-Geographischer Hand-Atlas zur Geschichte Asiens, Africa's, America's und Australiens , also known as Histor. Atlas. Ausser Europa . Size: Printed area measures 12.25 inches high by 15 inches wide. Condition: Very good. Original centerfold. Shipping: Shipping rates are not negotiable.

DHL or FedEx will contact the buyer by telephone to arrange payment. Duty varies by country and we cannot predict the amount you will be charged. Some countries are duty free, others are not. Typically, a customs duty and/or VAT tax will be assessed on all parcels to continental Europe. Sometimes duty or tax is due in China, but is seems very random. Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea, and Taiwan have never assessed duty on a map we shipped. Maps shipped to the UK should be duty free, but from time to time duty of 5% is assessed incorrectly by the UK customs agents. Insurance: All shipments are insured privately against loss and damage.
