The Rhodesia of the British South Africa Company

JOHNSTON, W. & A.K.

W. & A.K. Johnston's Map of Rhodesia.
Edinburgh & London: c.1897mm. Lithographic map printed in colour. Sheet 500 x 380mm, laid on linen and folded into original cloth gilt covers.

Minor wear to folds.

A folding map of Rhodesia less than a decade after the area was taken over by Cecil Rhodes' British South Africa Company.
Salisbury (Harare) is marked, with the surrounding gold fields, as is the British Central Africa Protectorate (Malawi) and an arm of German South West Africa.
Of interest are the 'The Shangani Native Reserve' and 'The Guay Native Reserves', established 1893. These areas resettled the Ndebele locals displaced for White settler farms: they were infested with tsetse fly and malaria, and were too sandy to grow crops. They were described by Earl Grey (appointed Administrator of Southern Rhodesia in 1896) as 'cemeteries'.

Emmanuel Chinyamakobvu: The Farm on Their Land, 48-9.
