This is a high relief map of the African continent made by the Atlas School Supply company out of Chicago at the start of the 20th century.
While we have seen our fair share of relief maps, few have compared to this one in terms of its originality and superb condition. The map displays exceptional detail with regards to not only the topography Africa, but the political geography at the turn of the 20th century. Some of regions worth noting in this map include Tripoli, British East Africa, Kongo Free State, French Kongo, Bechuana Land, British Bechuana Land, and Cape Colony. At the bottom of the map is vertical scale of elevation to accompany the relief style of the map.
