Description

Detailed and clearly drawn maps of Africa by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK). This wonderful English enterprise was devoted to the spreading of up-to-date information and the enhancing of geographical understanding. These precise views of 19th-century geography are splendid examples of the Society’s work. Each region is shown with impressive, precise detail.  Of note is the appearance of the mythical “Kong Mountains”
