Title : Africa Vera Forma, et Situs..
Map maker : DE JODE, C..
Date : Antwerp, 1593.
Size : 12.8 x 17.8 inches. / 32.5 x 45.1 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured

Description :This very rare map is an interesting amalgamation of cartographical sources. Cornelis prepared this map for the second edition of the Speculum after his father's death in 1591. It replaced the African map of the first edition that had been attributed to Gastaldi.

This map retains the continental outline from Gastaldi with the interior based primarily on Mercator's world map of 1569. This is most evident in the river systems, including Sachaf lac as the source of the Zabere (Zembere), Cuama and R. d S. Spirito rivers in southern Africa. The map also incorportates information from Ortelius including the placement of Zanzibar on the southwest coast. Decorated with ships and sea monsters and representations of the native people scattered across the map. ¤

Betz, Africa 27. Van der Krogt 3, 8600:32B.
Condition : There is some restauration in the center. Centerfold reinforced.

ID: 91005
