Description: This is a fine example of J. Migeon's 1878 map of the Province of Oran, Algeria. The Department of Oran existed from 1848 to 1962 and was one of the three administrative districts of French Algeria. The lower right quadrant contains a legend while the left and right side of the map includes decorative engravings illustrating the landscape and the town of Oran and the indigenous Algerians. After being captured by the French in 1830, Algeria became an attractive destination for european immigrants. However the majority indigenous Muslim population was dissatisfied with the French dominated political system. This dissatisfaction would ultimately trigger the Algerian War leading to Algeria's independence. Migeon identifies various rivers, mountain passes, lakes and other topographical features. Migeon's Geographie Universelle , published in Paris, is one of the last great decorative atlases of the 19th century. It contains many stylistic elements of early 19th century cartography such as full hand coloring, numerous decorative vignettes, and high quality paper. This map was issued in Migeon's Geographie Universelle . Size: Printed area measures 12.5 inches high by 18 inches wide. Condition: Very good. Original centerfold. Blank on verso.
