An attractive almost-modern map of the entire continent of Africa including the Cape Verde Islands, and showing Europe as far north as the British Isles. The borders within Afica are coloured to represent the imperial control of the European countries also on the map; Britain in pink, France purple, Belgium orange and so on. A decorative snapshot of the contient at this key point in its history, and an unusual unbound plate from the "Times Mid-Century Atlas Of The World", one of the finest atlases of the twentieth century.
