This is a scarce separate-issue example of C. F. Weiland's 1827 map of Africa. This uncommon map predates the explosion of African exploration that occurred in the mid-19th century. Much of the interior remains unknown. The Ptolemaic Mountains of the Moon (Monds Berge) are drawn across the central part of the continent with the suggestions that they are the source of several branches of the Nile. Several speculative courses are drawn for the Niger River, one of which heads east towards the Nile, another of which correctly bends southwards to empty into the Bight of Biafra. Identifies numerous African tribes throughout, including the Pemba, Bushmen, Movizas and several others. Lake Marawi appears embryonically. Various, important rivers, islands, mountains, cities and other topographical details are noted. The map is color coded to depict English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch and Danish possessions. This map was created by C. F. Weiland and published by the Weimar Geographical Institute.
