Description

Here's a beautiful antique engraved map of Alexandria, Egypt back in 1906.

If you ever find yourself traveling back in time and find yourself walking the streets of the city of Alexandria back in 1906, you'll be able to navigate your way around the city's ports and streets with grace and ease!

Alexandria was founded around a small pharaonic town c. 331 BC by Alexander the Great. It remained Egypt's capital for nearly a thousand years, until the Muslim conquest of Egypt in AD 641, when a new capital was founded at Fustat (Fustat was later absorbed into Cairo). Alexandria was known because of its Lighthouse of Alexandria (Pharos), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; its library (the largest library in the ancient world); and the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages. Ongoing maritime archaeology in the harbor of Alexandria, which began in 1994, is revealing details of Alexandria both before the arrival of Alexander, when a city named Rhacotis existed there during the Ptolemaic dynasty.
From the late 19th century, Alexandria became a major center of the international shipping industry and it's one of the most important trading centers in the world both because it profited from the easy overland connection between the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea and the lucrative trade in Egyptian cotton.

This original map from 1906 is illustrated in yummy soft pastel colors; all done in those gorgeous shades of Carnation Pinks and Aquas that early mapmakers loved so much, with lettering done in German in a beautiful Gutenburg calligraphy text. There's a key to the city on the right side outlining the city's many points of interest.

The lovely satin-finished antique map measures 6.25" x 9.25" overall and it's blank on the reverse side. '1906 Map Of Alexandria Egypt' is printed on heavy paper stock and is in wonderful antique condition; the paper is smooth, clean and condition, without tanning, wrinkles, foxing or flaw.... a real vintage gem.

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

Surrender Dorothy offers an over-the-top array of unusual and ever so affordable frame-worthy vintage and antique prints, maps, sketches, engravings, lithographs, ads, posters, diagrams, charts and illustrations of all descriptions to adorn every room in your happy home. Terrific vintage finds to fancy-up your workplace too.

Our entire inventory moves in and out of here very quickly and fresh selections are added to our shop each day. Please be sure to bookmark us and check back to visit us often so you don't miss any of our latest discoveries.

I'll send this lovely jewel to you First Class Mail by way of those nice folks at the USPS packed flat and protected in a rigid mailer.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
We prefer PayPal as it's the fastest and safest method.
Cashier's Checks and Money Orders are okay too but only if they are received within four days of your order, otherwise we'll cancel the order and put the item back up for sale.

We BEG you guys, Please... If your Etsy Address and PayPal Addresses are different, please please let us know where you would like us to send your package. We have a real talent for choosing the wrong one.

Returns & exchanges

Returns
We are happy to accept returns in good condition in the original packaging shipped within 48 hours as exchanges only and you agree to pay postage both ways.

Damages In The US Mail.
They happen sometimes.
Although we carefully wrap our vintage breakables in tons of bubblewrap and tons of padding and pack them in sturdy shipping boxes, damages still sometimes happen. *sigh*
Please tell us about damaged goods ASAP. Photograph the damages and send photos to us so that we can work it out with USPS.

Shipping policies

We ship by way of the United States Postal Service only.
Yes, FedEx and UPS are a little bit cheaper, but we find them to be very brutal with our delicates and breakables, so we refuse to play with them.

International Orders
The answer is YES we do ship internationally. Please just ask! There are many shipping destinations on this planet and each one is a slightly different price.

Additional policies

While it is considered customary for many antique and vintage shops to consider offers and dicker prices, our shop simply doesn't.
We've priced our merchandise as fairly as humanly possible. Please don't ask us to haggle.
Thank you.
