Small size version of a cloth-backed reproduction by Old Folding Maps of a map Africa in the middle of the 19th century published by the Edinburgh-based Gall & Inglis. Most of its coastal regions as well as the western parts of the Sahara have already been explored, but the interior of the continent was still at that time unknown and is blank.

This reproduction was taken from what used to be called a “cloth-dissected” map, made when the map itself was cut into sections and each section then individually pasted onto an overall cloth backing for the whole map. In this version the whole map is backed onto cloth in one piece but the gaps between the sections have been reproduced in the printing to preserve the style and the feeling of the original. Each individual map is sold folded in a colourful case covered with a unique design marbled paper – no two cases are identical.

PLEASE NOTE: this title is also available in a larger size. To see the list of all the titles in this series from the Old Folding Maps please click on the series link.
