This historic map of Africa takes you back to 1909, when the "Dark Continent" was barely known to the outside world. The only way to get to 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 acts as a time capsule, preserving those early days of African exploration. Artistic cartography and painstaking detail make this a map for any collector.
