Over the course of forty years, Oscar Norwich accumulated the world's greatest private collection of African maps. From the fabulous creatures depicted on early maps to the blank "regions unknown" of later ones, this collection documents a long and troubled history of developing knowledge of the continent. Bibliographical descriptions by Pam Kolbe. Extensively illustrated in black and white and in color. Very fine.
