recent arrival
One of a pair of large separately issued maps representing the first broadly accurate general maps of Southern Egypt and Northern Sudan. This very detailed map was produced at the large scale of 6 miles to the inch and extends from Hannek to south of Khartoum and eastwards to the Red Sea at Suakin and to Kassala in the southeast. An inset map shows Khartoum with its environs. Under the direction of Major W. Fox, the map was prepared in the Intelligence Branch of the War Office during the period of Mahdist war and actually printed while the siege of Khartoum was in place, resulting in the shocking defeat and massacre of the Anglo-Egyptian garrison, including its famous commander, General Charles Gordon. Extensive restoration to old folds and weak margins but no printed detail lost - a rare survival of historical significance.
