Item:332989968812An original antique, copper-engraved map of the continent of Africa and Madagascar published in c.1880 in Adolf Stieler’s ‘Hand Atlas uber alle Theile der Erde und uber das Weldgebaude ’ by the Justus Perthes publishing house in Gotha. The 6th edition which was printed from 1875-1881 is generally regarded as the edition in which the work reached the high scientific level and the unsurpassed relief Stieler's Atlas is famous for. The map is titled ‘Afrika' and it provides a nicely detailed view of the entire continent as well as Madagascar and Arabia (notes in German); it is particularly interesting to see how much of the interior of Africa was still largely unknown in the late 19th century. It is nicely hand coloured with the printed area measuring approximately 405mm x 330mm with good sized margins beyond, blank verso. There is a centrefold as published. Condition report: Excellent condition, good quality paper, light age toning as is appropriate to a map of this age; occasional marks to the margins not affecting the printed area.
