This attractive map of Africa was published in "The Philips New General Atlas", George Philip & Son London & Liverpool. This map shows clearly the extent of knowledge of the interior in Livingstone's day. The map is surrounded by a distinctive and decorative piano-key border. Both side margins reinstated but otherwise a good example.
