Africa : Anonymous

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A charming and amusing sheet from a children's atlas or geography book comprising a miniature and simple map of the continent of Africa (70x108 mms) surrounded by vignettes of scenes of African life, people, animals and landscapes. These images include "Hunting the lion',' Hunting the ostrich',' The emperor of Morocco, Tunis, Abyssinia and Algiers' in a splendid palace, Kafirland', 'Africans washing gold sand', 'The pyramids' and 'Bosjemans or bushmen'. There is also a crudely drawn scene of 'Mounted police of the Cape of Good Hope'. Printed on thin paper and backed with old cotton for conservation. Maps of this type have relatively low survival rates and are consequently rare.
