Description: This is a beautiful example of Rand McNally and Company's 1892 map of Egypt. It covers Egypt from the Mediterranean Sea south to Metaghara. Identifies various ruins and several explorer routes including Bonaparte's 1799 invasion route, Hornemann's 1798 route through Siwa, and others. The Suez Canal is clearly noted. An inset in the lower left quadrant features Said or Upper Egypt while another inset in the lower right quadrant features Cairo and environs. Egypt, at the time was under the British Mandate. Color coded according to regions, the map notes several towns, cities, rivers, oases, deserts, mountains, railroads and various other topographical details with relief shown by hachure.
