This is a fine print reproduction of wonderful map of western Africa that was created by R. Chapelet in circa 1930 to 1935.

This poster is celebrating the merger of two of the big three shipping companies out of Marseilles. Due to competition with Italian shipping companies in the Black Sea, the freshly merged Fabre & Fraissinet redoubled their efforts on the western coast of Africa. The transport of fruit as well as post was expanded at the time.

The map is wonderfully detailed using the fullest extent of interwar era geographic knowledge. Featured predominantly is a large ship in the design of the Corte II, with an extra smokestack.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
