A delightfully whimsical 1846 map of Africa, from a German kinderatlas or children's atlas. The map covers the entire continent from the Mediterranean Sea to Cape Town. Also includes the island of Madagascar. The whole is surrounded by a wide border featuring charming vignettes meant to illustrate the peoples and cultures of the region. These include a tiger being strangled by an anaconda, a camel, a crocodile, a giraffe, and equestrian figures. The map is accompanied by its adjacent page, which includes a poetic history of Africa in German gothic type. The wonderful and rare map was drawn by Anst. V A. Boeden of Berlin for inclusion as plate no. in xVIII in the 1846 issue of Julius Loewenberg's Geographische Landerfibel.
