Produced by prominent American cartographer George Washington Bacon in 1916, this depiction of the Nile Basin shows the region in a period of significant transformation as modern technology entered the area and created new economic opportunities for some 238 million residents of the Nile Basin. Bacon started producing maps of London before branching out and creating works that focused on other parts of the globe. Bacon produced maps based on engravings made by English-born artist and lithographer Edward Weller, who was an early adopter of plate-based prints that could be utilized multiple times to mass-produce maps and increase productivity.
The Nile Basin remains one of the most notable drainage basins in the world and is among the most iconic places for exploration due to its vast size. The source was not identified until the discovery of the Blue Nile by Scottish Explorer James Bruce in 1870 though the head of the White Nile remains disputed to this day. The Nile River drains into the Mediterranean Sea and is considered the longest river in the world, though there continue to be claims that the Amazon is longer. The Nile River supports the region economically, providing fertile lands for agriculture as well as fishing and tourism.
This map bears a distinctive aesthetic that makes it immediately recognizable with bold colors and crisp lines that are characteristic of the early twentieth century. This is an authentic piece of international cartographical history that creates a link between the present and the past.
