A fine detailed map showing the countries of Transvaal, most of Orange Free State, Griqua Land West, Basuto Land, Natal and Zulu Land with inset maps of Pretoria, the Zimbabwe ruins, and Lourenáo Marques. Occasional neat annotation to the map in a contemporary hand, spine and covers showing signs of fading, a very good copy.
