International Symposium on “Old Worlds-New Worlds”: The History of Colonial Cartography 1750-1950 Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands, 21 to 23 August 2006 Working Group on the History of Colonial Cartography in the 19th and 20th centuries International Cartographic Association (ICA-ACI) Providing a tolerably correct map of South Africa”1 : the cartography of Henry Hall Elri Liebenberg Emeritus Professor of Geography, University of South Africa [email protected] Abstract In 1856 Stanford’s Geographical Establishment in London published Henry Hall’s comprehensive Map of the Eastern Frontier of the Colony of the Cape Good Hope. Compiled from local authoritative information only, this map not only surpassed its predecessors in scale and completeness, but also achieved a marked degree of accuracy. In 1857 Hall became the first resident cartographer to publish a map of the entire African region south of 16°S. Entitled South Africa, this map was the first of its kind ever to be produced in South Africa as not only the compilation, but also the engraving, printing, colouring and mounting were undertaken locally. In 1859 Stanford’s published two additional maps under Hall’s name: one of the subcontinent south of 25° 30’S entitled South Africa, and another entitled Map of South Eastern Africa from Algoa to Delagoa Bay. In spite of Henry Hall’s rightful claim to fame as South Africa’s foremost pioneer cartographer, little has been published on his cartographical work. This paper discusses his contribution to South African geography and cartography by reviewing his maps against the background of the available topographical information and the political situation of the day. Attention is given to his source material; his hitherto little known manuscript maps of South Africa in the British National Archives (BNA) and Cape Archives Repository (CAR); the significance of his published maps and his
