Upper Nubia and Abyssinia
A fold-out map from Keith Johnston's Royal Atlas
Undated, c1870s. Blue cloth binding with gilt titling to upper board. Size when folded: 23 × 10.5cm + fold-out indices.
This fold-out has 12 segments backed on canvas, totalling 60 × 46cm, and shows Upper Nubia and Abyssinia. Some colouring to show caravan routes and coastal areas. There are two fold-out indices, which cover two maps, Egypt (No 39)—this is not included, and Abyssinia (No 40, present).
Poor. The blue cloth is faded, the map segments waterstained and lifting from the canvas with some creasing to the edges. The index torn along the folds. However still quite an interesting map.
