Notes: [PENDING ARRIVAL POTTER] An interesting and very informative map "Compiled from the latest Private and Imperial information and from Geological and Geodetic Surveys, made by the Compiler". Coloured codes are used to signify gold belts, granite, and coalfields. The title is given in the top left hand corner and key to colours and other symbols in bottom right. Dissected into 30 sections, laid on linen and folding into original red cloth case, with printed yellow label. A fascinating and very detailed map (at a scale of approximately 11 miles to one inch) of western Zimbabwe
