Africa Map 1909
Item#: X NGC 031909

This historic map of Africa takes you back to 1909, a time when the "Dark Continent" was barely known in the outside world. A time when the only way to get to far off places like Abyssinia, the Congo State, and Bechuanaland Protectorate was to take a long sea voyage, then travel many miles by rail. National Geographic was among the first to bring this amazing land to the world, and this incredible map provides a time capsule into these times. Artistic cartography and painstaking detail make this a map for any collector.

The 1909 Africa map features:
• Country boundaries that show Independent Territories and Congo State, along with territories under control of Egypt, England, Germany, Spain, Italy, Turkey, France, and Portugal.
• Railroads in operation and those that were proposed
• Steamship lines, caravan routes, cable lines, telegraph lines
• Gold fields, silver fields, and diamond fields
• Ocean liner routes leading to African destinations from other parts of the world
• Principal products of each country or region are highlighted on the map
• Contour elevation lines in 500 foot increments

Coverage Area: Africa, Arabian Peninsula, Spain, Italy, Turkey and the Turkish Empire
