1797 Laurie and Whittle Nautical Map of Mozambique and Madagascar (the Inner Passage)

My fascinations with maps, antiques and history all come together with this map. I am delighted to share it and if you feel so inclined as to purchase it and give it to me as a gift, I would be elated! If not then a decent copy would suffice. I’d like to add this to a collection of historical maps of Africa, exhibited in chronological order, to reveal the spread and increase of knowledge of the continent over time. The map can be found here:  http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/AntiqueMaps-AFRICA-MAPS/~3/5jHYvGQOI10/AfricaMadagascar-laruiewhittle-1797

    That would be a very interesting collection!

    • Thanks for stopping by the blog! I really desire to be able to make this collection happen. It will be a component of a larger effort but could easily stand alone.
