Description: This is an 1886 Walter Montagu Kerr map of southeastern Africa which depicts his journey to Lake Malawi from Port Elizabeth, South Africa. The map stretches from Zimbabwe to Lake Malawi, labeled here as Lake Nyassa, and from the Zambezi River to the Pacific coast of Mozambique. An inset map at the bottom right corner presents his journey from Cape Town through Port Elizabeth to Gubuluwayo. The central map depicts the route from Gubuluwayo across Africa to the Zambezi River and on to Lake Nyassa. A highly-detailed depiction of the region, the map labels the different, though ill-defined, tribal lands encountered by Kerr. Towns and villages are labeled, as well as myriad rivers all along the route. The course of the Zambezi is traced across the entirety of the map, from the left border across the map to its mouth along the right border. The map accompanied an article printed in the Proceedings of the Royal Geographical Society and Monthly Record of Geography entitled, 'A Journey from Cape Town Overland to Lake Nyassa.' The article, originally read at a meeting of the Royal Geographical Society, recounts Kerr's travels through the region. Several of the locations described in the paper are marked on the map, allowing the reader to easily trace Kerr's progress toward Lake Malawi. This map was created by W. Montagu Kerr and published by W. and A.K. Johnston in the February 1886 issue of the Proceedings of the Royal Geographical Society and Monthly Record of Geography .
