EDITORS COMMENTS
This map print, titled "Map, Afrique Equatoriale; L'Ouest Africain" and dated 1914, offers a fascinating glimpse into the colonial era of Africa. The map depicts the westernmost region of Central Africa, encompassing present-day Angola, Cameroon, Gabon, and parts of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Central African Republic, Chad, and Sudan. The map was published in the renowned Belgian geography magazine "Grande Geographie Bong Illustree," indicating its origins in the Belgian colonial empire. The map is a testament to the intense competition and scramble for African territories during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. British, French, Belgian, Portuguese, and German colonies are clearly demarcated, reflecting the complex political landscape of the time. The map's intricate detailing and vibrant color palette make it an engaging representation of the geography and territorial claims during this period. The map's creation coincides with the height of European colonialism in Africa, as powers like Belgium, France, Britain, Portugal, and Germany sought to expand their empires and exert influence over the African continent. The map serves as a visual reminder of the historical significance of this era, which shaped the political, economic, and social landscape of Africa and the world at large. Despite the map's unknown creator, it remains an essential historical artifact, providing valuable insights into the geography and colonial history of Central Africa during the 1910s. Its inclusion in "Grande Geographie Bong Illustree" further underscores its importance as a significant piece of cartographic history.
