Valid, didn't catch that.Britain doesn’t own Pakistan.
Only the Belgian Congo is coloured in and not European Belgium.
Disagree with this, though. That seems to be about right if we're going by active settlement. Algeria, for example:French control over North Africa is limited to the coasts.
OK issues that I see... Modern (or at least Soviet time period) borders within Russia and in West Africa, Modern Pakistan not marked as British, (in 1888, I think that Afghanistan would have counted as well. Puerto Rico should be Spanish gold as well. If Belgium has all of the Congo then there are considerable French areas missing in Africa. Arguably, the British should not have complete control around the entire Australian Coastline in 1888, but that's *really* minor. So I'm not giving it the grade of F the original poster gave, but not the grade of B that this poster seemed to give...I feel like I'm missing something. This seems about right for the 1880s-1890s. I mean, I'm sure there are some odd smaller issues with borders, but nothing despicable enough to be "one of the worst maps you've ever seen"
And it took the entire Red Sea along for the ride it seems.The Suez Canal seems to have migrated north for the winter.
