Maps of Africa
Stanford’s Maps of Africa Collection became a major research resource in August of 2001 with the acquisition of the Oscar I. Norwich Collection of
Maps of Africa and its islands, 1486 – ca. 1900. This acquisition added
316 maps to Stanford’s existing holdings of Maps of Africa. The
collection nearly doubled in size in 2010 with the purchase of 294
Rumsey Map Collection, and the University of Cape Town Collections.
