The map: Antique map of Abyssinia in northeastern Africa during the height of colonial claims in the region. Countries are shown with color-tinted areas, cities and waterways. Topographic detail is engraved as hachures to represent mountain ranges and the Nile River is shown in the northwestern corner of the map. This lovely original print, over 100 years old, represents exceptionally fine engraving techniques. The map was drawn in 1914 and published a year later in 1915.
