Interesting and sketchy map showing the upper Nile, Ethiopia, Sudan and the Yemen. Caravan routes are shown, and texts such as ‘Country mountainous and woody, inhabited by pagan negroes’, take over when geographical fact runs out. John Arrowsmith constantly revised and improved his popular London Atlas and it ran to many editions. The London Atlas of Universal Geography.

Copper engraving. Original colour. Fine condition. Size: 59 x 47.5 cm. (23 x 18 inches).
