Published by Samuel Augustus Mitchell, better known for his maps of North America, this is an excellent example of the state of knowledge of the continent in the mid-nineteenth century. The coastline is well-defined and accurate. Two existing nations, Liberia and Egypt are marked, but the interior is largely featureless. The original map measures 15 x 17 inches.
