Beautiful, antique map of Ancient North Africa, or what is modern-day Morocco, Algeria & Tunisia, including Portugal, Spain, France & Italy. This is an authentic 1856 engraving, published in the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Information Atlas. This map is original & is NOT a reproduction. See what Africa looked like in ancient times. Hand colored. Verso is blank. Lots of intricate, charming details like mountains, islands, lakes, trade routes, canals, rivers & older city names. Perfect for the historian, map-lover, the curious or just as a conversation starter. Wonderful & rare. Vintage maps such as these make great gifts. Edition of 1856, printed 1856 Dimensions: 17 1/4" width x 14" height Features Places & Features: North Africa, Mediterranean Sea, Europe, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Sahara Desert, Spain, Portugal, Corsica, Sardinia, Hispania, Iberia, Gaetulia, Mauritania Tingitana, Pityusae Insulae, Baleares Insulae, Sicily, Byzacena, & much more. The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK) was founded in 1826 with the object of publishing information to people who were unable to obtain formal teaching, or who preferred self-education. Their publications were intended for the working class & the middle class, as an antidote to the more radical output of the pauper presses. Condition: Very Good condition, commensurate with age. This map is in incredible shape for being more than 160 years old. Light edge-wear & coloration as can be seen in the photographs, but this will read as vintage character when framed. We will happily adjust shipping price for multiple purchases. Maps are rolled up & shipped in sturdy mailing tubes, never folded.
