STANFORD, Edward [publisher]. Large Scale Map of the Nile from Dongola to Khartum and the Desert Route from Suakin to Berber. London, Stanford, September 20, 1897.

Large lithographic map (70 x 92 cm), printed in black and blue, linen-backed and dissected into 32 segments, folding back into the original cloth-covered folder with printed label on upper board, a very good and clean copy.
This is probably one of the best maps of the time of the middle Nile, with a scale of 16 miles to an inch and an inset map of the entire Nile Basin and of the surroundings of Khartum. The route from the Red Sea to Berber on the Nile is described with one paragraph of text printed in the desert area, warning that 'the worst part of the journey is the latter half, the wells being so far apart'. The map definitely resulted from the Dongola Expedition of 1896.
