[Africa] Mitchell, Map of Africa Showing Its Most Recent Discoveries. Philadelphia, 1876. 10 x 13. Original color. Fine. Traces Livingstone's route, and notes Burton's discovery of Lake Tanganyika in 1859. Much of the interior is still captioned "Unknown," but northwest of Lake Kamalondo is a body of water named "Lake Lincoln" (now Lake Iki). Livingstone, a fervent opponent of the African slave trade, admired Lincoln and recorded this "tribute of love to the great and good man America enjoyed for some time and then lost." SOLD
