A new digital collection: African Historical Maps

This new collection is the result of a collaborative project undertaken by UCT Libraries and Stanford University Libraries, funded by The William and Yvonne Jacobson Digital Africana Program at UCT.The project  aims to share digital African content for the benefit of both Stanford and UCT, and for scholarship in general. It has enabled the digitisation of historical maps of Africa from UCT’s collections, as well as a number of early street plans of the City of Cape Town.
