This is a VERY uncommon map of Africa, which was printed from a copperplate. The map is from a rare German school atlas published in 1845. Some place names are underlined in colour to identify the colonial occupier of the territories, prior to the infamous Berlin Conference and to the occupations by the German Empire). The colonial occupiers identified are: Great Britain, France, Portugal, Spain. Holland and Denmark.
The map is from Geographischer Schul- und Hand-Atlas, publisher of this second edition being published by G.A. Reyher.
The map is in very good condition. Parts of the margin, outside the plateline, have been professionally reinforced using Japanese tissue paper in order to promote the integrity of the map.
An uncommon map that captures an interesting period in the history of colonial occupation in Africa.
