Article description

Lithograph, original color in outline. Detailed antique map of the Kibo-Krater of the Kilimanjaro, the highest Mountain range of Africa. This Massif was created by the Swabian missionaries Johann Ludwig Krapf (1810-1881) and Johann Rebmann (1820-1876) discovered. Rumors of white, probably snow-capped mountains in the interior of East Africa near the equator, they led to the foot of the Kilimanjaro. Knowledge of the snow-covered "moon mountains" existed in ancient times. Ptolemy shows south of the Nile source lakes (Paludes nili) Mountain ridges with «mons lune» and «nives» are labeled. The first modern customer over the snow-covered Kilimanjaro near the Equator came through at the beginning of the 16th century the Spanish exploration circle.
