Carta Della Tripolitania – Algeria – Marocco e Teatro Della Guerra Italo-Turca

An important rare separate map showing northern Africa during the war between the Kingdom of Italy and the Ottoman Empire from September 29, 1911, to October 18, 1912. As a result of this conflict, Italy captured the Ottoman Tripolitania Vilayet (province), of which the main sub-provinces (sanjaks) were Fezzan, Cyrenaica, and Tripoli itself. These territories together formed what became known as Italian Libya. The Italo-Turkish War saw numerous military technological changes, notably the first use of the airplane for reconnaissance and bombing. Although minor, the war was a significant precursor of the First World War as it sparked nationalism in the Balkan states. Seeing how easily the Italians had defeated the weakened Ottomans, the members of the Balkan League attacked the Ottoman Empire starting the First Balkan War before the war with Italy had ended.
The interesting really detailed map by Arcangelo Ghisleri based on E. Heber published in Bergamo in 1911 shows also the entire Africa on the right and the Dodecanese and the Ottoman Empire inset on the left.

Marruecos Español

Beautiful large pictorial map of the northern part of the former Spanish Protectorate in present-day Morocco, which existed from 1912 to 1956. The Spanish protectorate in Morocco was established in 1912 by a treaty between France and Spain that converted the Spanish sphere of influence in Morocco into a formal protectorate.
The map was designed by caricaturist and graphic designer, Francisco Lopez Rubio [1895-1965] as part of Cartographica Hispanica, a collection of 6 pictorial cartoon maps of parts of Spain issued in Barcelona in 1940 by López Rubio and his partner Manuel L. Ortega. The map covers the area from Gibraltar to Fes, and from Kenitra to Berkane is richly embellished by wonderful vignettes showing differences between the traditional Arab & bedouin culture of North Africa and modern 20th Century industry & technology. An interesting central feature is the giant obelisk (the present-day Monument del Llano Amarillo) which dominates the landscape around the settlement of Ketama and the wall from west to east across the centre of the map that delineates the border between the French and Spanish colonial regions.
