British Central Africa. Description: Depicting what Pearce calls 'the hitherto blank piece of country between Lake Chiuta and the Luli river', this is a 1900 Captain F. B. Pearce map of part of Malawi and Mozambique. Then divided between British Central Africa and Portuguese Mozambique, this map focuses on a portion of East Africa between Lake Chilwa in Malawi and the Lurio River in Mozambique. Per an article in The Geographical Journal , the map was surveyed by Pearce during a joint Anglo-Portuguese military expedition undertaken in 1899 against the slave-raiding chief Kwamba. Numerous villages are labeled throughout the region, along with hills, ridges, mountains, and forests. The flood plains of both Lake Chilwa and Lake Chiuta are illustrated, demonstrating to its viewers the vast differences between the African wet and dry season in this part of the continent. An inset map in the lower right corner situates the depicted region in East Africa in general, allowing the viewer to note that Lake Chilwa is not far from Lake Nyassa (Lake Malawi), that it borders Portuguese East Africa, and that German East Africa is not far to the north. This map was created by Captain F. B. Pearce and printed by the Royal Geographical Society in its Geographical Journal in 1900. Size: Printed area measures 10.5 inches high by 15.75 inches wide.

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.

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.
