Please read this listing carefully AND review the many high resolution photos. Large four-sheet map by Daniel Lizars, Edinburgh, 1831. Incredible 4-sheet original copper-plate engraved antique map of Africa, by David Lizards (Edinburgh) 1831 undated but references indicate this is from “The Edinburgh Historical and Geographical Atlas”, published by Whittaker, Treacher & Co. (London), John Hamilton (Edinburgh) and W. Four equal size sheets each comprising one quarter of the complete Africa map. Each sheet measures 19 x 22 inches and is a double-sheet joined at middle. The four sheets are not joined together in a single large map, however they could be and have been by others (see online references and final image in this listing for how they look like joined). Extremely rare to find this complete group in like condition un-joined. Hand colored in outline. Infrequent light spotting/foxing in margins but generally clean and bright. Light edge-wear including very slight creasing and a few tiny chips along edges. Map title in period handwriting verso each map. One of my favorite sellers.
