A fascinating piece of marketing ephemera, coming from a time when these "National Geographical" series trade cards were offered free with Arbuckles' Coffee, produced and sold from New York across the USA. On the back of each card is marketing/explanatory text which includes the following description: "The series of cards to which this one belongs, consists of 50, each card of which shows a correct colored map, properly bounded, of one of the chief countries of the world, and portrays the peculiarities of industry, scenery, etc., of each nation, in original pictures, true to nature, made by the best modern artists." This charming card of Central Africa includes a map of the area along with images of ostriches and hunting spears.
