Vintage original print: Africa orographic (landforms) and bathymetric (subsea terrain) map focused on the natural features of the continent and the surrounding seas. Terrain is shown by elegant hypsometric tints, colors used to indicate land elevations and ocean depth. Details of this old map include geographic regions, rivers, waterbodies, coastal bays and harbors. Two sectional diagrams illustrate comparative elevations from coast to coast, across Equatorial Africa, and from north to south, from Cairo to the mouth of the Zambezi River.

An inset map of the Nile Delta (Lower Egypt) is included.
