The Stewart Collection

A collection of antique miniature maps of Southern Africa and Africa 

This website is dedicated to our family's modest collection of antique maps of Africa.  The site comprises images, information and some articles.

    The focus of the map collection is:

        * Small and miniature maps of Southern Africa;
        * Small and miniature maps of the African Continent;
        * Selected larger format maps of  Southern Africa and
        * Two maps of Africa that are of special significance to us.

    The articles are on:

        * Maps (Maps of the Month) or Map Makers we have studied
          (Cartography Articles);
        * Miscellaneous topics related to cartography.

We hope that the site is of interest to collectors of and dealers in antique maps in our areas of focus.
We update the site at least monthly; the next feature will be maps from friends.  
Please contact us if you find errors, if you can fill gaps in our knowledge, if you think we can provide information or if you would like us to display your map on our site.
