Notes: [source Ruderman 76453] map of South Africa, illustrating the routes of important early travellers in the region in the first decades of the 19th Century. The map is apparently keyed to the text in volume 2 of Carl Ritter's Geography work. Carl Ritter (1779 - 1859) was a German geographer. Along with Alexander von Humboldt, he is considered one of the founders of modern geography. The map illustrates the routes of the following travellers: Henry Lichtenstein in 1805 John Cambell in 1812 John Cambell in 1819 Includes a large inset of the area around False Bay and Table Bay.
