G.) Map of Eastern Equatorial Africa, between 10° N. and 20° S. and East of Long. 25, publ. under the authority of the R. Geographical Society, in twenty-five large sheets, 27 inches square, 258
RAVENSTEIN'S MAP OF AFRICA.-At length we have the second part of the great map of Eastern Equatorial_Africa, which Mr. Ravenstein is compiling for the Geographical Society. The part contains six sheets-12 to 18. with the exception of 15-and includes one of the most interesting regions of the continent, that around Lakes Tanganyika, Mwutan Nzige, and Victoria Nyanza, and down to the coast at Zanzibar. It embraces much of the upper and middle course of the Lualaba, and the country to the north and northeast of Lake Nyassa. The map is really a compendium of the results of African exploration for the region which it covers; the information which it gives as to the routes of explorers and the various results that they have obtained is probably more detailed than will be found in any treatise on African geography. It is impossible to speak too highly of the way in which Mr. Ravenstein has done his work.
