In this map from A Comprehensive Atlas published by Thomas Bradford (Boston, 1835), Africa seems
still largely unknown. There are several fanciful features such as a mountain chain across equatorial
Africa. The interior is labelled "Great Southern Desert" whereas much of this area is upland savanna
and dry tropical forest. No political boundaries are recognized although the Portuguese territory of
Mozambique is in the approximate location it occupies today. The original measures 19.3 x 25.3 cm.
