Notes: source Dimambro] Uncertain date with blank area at the east African lake region; Issued c.1850-53, London by John Betts for The London Modern Atlas- (flourished 1844-63, 115 Strand) Scarce and decorative mid 19th century antique map. From a rare atlas which saw only a very limited distribution at the time, nothing like the major U. K. cartographic publishers of the day. The Ptolemy "Mountains of the Moon" are shown across the central interior now known as the Ruwenzori range;Lithographed with original hand color. Note the strong decorative surrounding border, a feature soon to disappear on maps of the era
