Description: This is a beautiful example of Rand McNally and Company's 1893 map of Abyssinia (Ethiopia) and surrounding countries. It covers from Abu Ahmed to Faweira and includes parts of Yemen in Arabia. This map was made in the year following the Great Ethiopian Famine, which killed around a third of its population and lasted from 1888 to 1892. This map of Abyssinia and surround countries, printed on half the page unlike most other maps in this atlas, contains a list of divisions, lakes, mountains, rivers and towns in the lower half of the page, on the left of the printed map. Color coded according to regions, the map notes several towns, cities, rivers, mountains, and various other topographical details with relief shown by hachure. This map was issued as plate no. 146 in the 1895 issue of Rand McNally and Company's Indexed Atlas of the World - possibly the finest atlas Rand McNally ever issued.

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.
