An attractive large folding map (60 cm x 75 cm) of Southern Africa from the Congo southwards, lithographed in colour on a single sheet of paper, linen-backed, folding into maroon cloth covers, with gilt titles on upper cover. In gilt on cover "The Rt. Hon. F.R. Moor, P.C., M.L.A. - Private Presentation Copy." Moor was the last Prime Minister of Natal before Union in 1910, which makes this an interesting association copy. Sir Frederick Robert Moor was Prime Minister of Natal from 1906-1910. The map concentrates mainly on railways and has inset maps of Africa, Cape Town & neigbourhood, Maritzburg suburban lines & Durban suburban lines. Revised to date and published by authority. Slight wear to covers, some light foxing, small tear at one fold.
