Stieler's maps showcase the superb nineteenth century German craftsmanship that went into cartography of the period. This example shows the standard that set German maps apart from those of other countries at the time. Accurately depicted are all the significant Southern Africa geographic features known at the time. There is no energy or space wasted on inaccuracies or fanciful decoration. The emphasis is on the presentation of verifiable information. in this sense, Stieler's maps are fully modern. Original map size is 20 x 22 inches.
