Map of Africa. Political map showing African regional boundaries in 1909. The Berlin Conference of 1884-85 had formalised the division of Africa among the European powers. The borders are colour-coded (key at bottom left): British (pink, mainly Sudan and southern Africa), French (red, mainly French West Africa), Italian (blue), German (orange), Portuguese (green), Spanish (dark brown), and Belgian (light brown). Independent states are yellow: Liberia, Morocco, Egypt and Ethiopia. This map is from the 1909 edition of 'The Map of Africa by Treaty' (first edition 1895 by Edward Hertslet) by Richard William Brant and Harry Leslie Sherwood.
