Published by George Philip & Son Ltd, London.
Folded Size: 19.8cm high x 11cm wide.
Extended Map Size: Approx 70cm high x 55cm wide.
Condition. Both are very good.
The Africa Map is torn along the narrow fold of 2 panels, there is a 5cm tear along one other narrow panel, a 2cm tear along another seam, and a small perforation at the corner join where 4 panels meet, but no missing piece (no tape repairs have been carried out).
The North West Africa Map has one 2cm tear along the fold at the edge of the sheet (not extending into the map itself; no tape repairs have been carried out).
The maps were designed by the London Geographical Institute. The Africa map has a printed date of 1940 and the other has no date, but is clearly contemporary with the other map.
The Africa map carries a Cairo booksellers sticker, and the other map a subtle printed ink stamp stating that the prices of the other publications listed are cancelled.
An attractive pair of vintage travellers maps.
