This is an excellent and quite detailed and precisely drawn map of South Africa. This was published one year before the Great Trek. Starting in 1835, more than 10,000 Boers (Voortrekkers) left the Cape Colony with their families and went north and northeast. This map shows the political and topographical setting for this historical event – with plenty of details as to topographical, settlement, native and animal populations. The four insets are of Environs of the Cape, District of George, Environs of Graham-Town, and Cape-Town.
