Ethiomap
Exploring Modern Maps of the Horn of Africa (18th-20th c.)

These ten maps were drawn by the French scientist Antoine d’Abbadie and published between 1862 and 1869 as annexes of his Géodésie d’une partie de la Haute Ethiopie, that provides comprehensive list of positions, detailed figures and extensive methodological comments based on data he collected in Ethiopia from 1842 to 1848.
