Map of route from Dongola to Khartum with Kitchener’s Report, 1884


The Nile. Large scale map from Dongola to Khartum. Scale 16 Miles to an inch. Edward Stanford [London] . With Major Kitchener’s Report. 1884

Folding map printed on paper with the Nile shown in blue, on a scale of 16 miles to 1 inch [22 x 28ins unfolded]. The map folds down to a size of 7 x 4.5ins and retains the original printed Stanford’s endpapers, the front with title and rear with advertisement and description of the smaller scale map of Equatorial Lakes to the Mediterranean. Interestingly this copy retains the original tipped in 4pp Major Kitchener’s Report 1884, which gives details of four routes [Debbah to Khartum, Ambukel to Wady Bishara, Merawi to Berber,Ambukel to Mettemeh]. The map is clean but there are some  edge tears without loss and some holes at the intersections of folds, and spluts along folds. The map margin notes that it was published on Oct 24th 1884.         feb27/1
