Colour-printed folding map on thin paper; measuring 60 by 90 cm; a few areas with fraying to margins; a rare survival.
'This highly decorative detailed, lithographed map city plan of Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, with titles in Latin and Arabic script, was made by the Sudan Survey Department in 1952, four years before Sudanese independence and in the year of the Egyptian Revolution, which supported the separation of Sudan' (Alex Johnson via David Rumsey Map Collection, online).
