Here is Mother Africa back in 1903.

~ The Entire World Was Sleeping In 1903. ~
Harry Houdni was one of the most popular people in America. Marie Currie received the Nobel prize in Physics. The US still had 48 states. Franklin Roosevelt was president. The Wright Brothers made their maiden flight...
No World Wars Had Yet Begun.

The dazzling details in this gorgeous, huge full-color steel engraved map illustration from the turn of the 20th century shown here in this gorgeous pastel colored map are simply amazing.
1903 Map Of Africa is a hand painted, full color steel engraved illustration measuring 8" x 10.
It would be absolutely spectacular framed.

Printing of this wonderful quality showing all the fine minute details, is a long lost art-form, I'm afraid. Engraved print making is an amazingly slow and time consuming process; far too costly to pay an artisan to do in these times.

'1903 Map Of Africa' is in wonderful condition, with crisp edges and corners with a lovely soft and even light tanning. Not too shabby at all for 106 year old paper! This beautiful old map is a rescued centerfold-out from an opulent reference book from the turn of the century. The lovely satin-finished paper measures 9.25" x 11.25" overall and it's folded in the center as it was when it was first issued 108 years ago.

'1903 Map Of Africa' is in wonderful condition – the paper is smooth and clean without tanning, wrinkles, foxing or flaw. This beautiful antique map of Edwardian era Africa is a real gem.

Matted, framed and displayed as a gallery grouping, these wonderful old maps are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last photo are just to show how this might look when it's framed. Your antique map will come unframed.)
