EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a beautifully detailed map of the Cape Verde Islands, created by the English School in the 19th century. The vibrant colors and intricate lithography bring this historical piece to life, offering a glimpse into the world of cartography during that era. Originally featured in A Gazetteer of the World or Dictionary of Geographical Knowledge published by Fullarton in 1858, this map was part of an Admiralty Survey. It provides valuable insights into the geographical knowledge available at that time. The Cape Verde Islands, located off the coast of West Africa, are depicted with utmost precision and accuracy. Each island is meticulously labeled, allowing viewers to explore their names and unique characteristics. This print serves as both an educational tool for geography enthusiasts and a visual delight for art lovers. Preserved within a private collection, this remarkable piece offers us a window into history. As we admire its beauty today, we can appreciate how maps like these were essential tools for explorers and navigators during Victoria's reign. Thanks to Bridgeman Images' preservation efforts, this extraordinary artwork has been made accessible to all who appreciate fine art and historical artifacts alike. Let it transport you back to the mid-19th century when cartographers diligently mapped our world with passion and precision.
