Abstract:Extant manuscript topographic maps of parts of former Northern Rhodesia are evidence of a little known episode in the history of colonial mapping in Africa. The district map is described, and the circumstances and methods of its construction is investigated. Early published maps may in part derive from manuscript district maps. The cartographic work of a former District Officer is reviewed.
