Title : Cimebebas et Caffariae Littora a Catenbela ad Promontorium Bonae Spei. Pascaerte... Gedruckt tot Amsterdam by L Renard..
Map maker : WIT, Frederick de Wit - RENARD, Louis .
Date : Amsterdam, (c.1675) 1710.
Size : 16.9 x 21.1 inches. / 42.8 x 53.5 cm.
Colouring : Original Body Color with later embellishments

Description :A highly decorative chart of the southern and southwest coast of Africa including the Cape of Good Hope. A large title cartouche dominates the top of the chart. This cartouche shows lions, leopards, and other African animals. The left of the cartouche shows a group of Europeans negotiating with Africans; figures of Africans are also shown. The bottom right vignette has Neptune and a female figure surrounded by cherubs and drawn by three horses.
Several sea battles are also depicted. The copperplate that produced this seachart was originally prepared by Frederick de Wit (1629-1706). Upon the death of De Wit and the dispersal of his copperplates in 1710, Renard used the copperplate to produce this map. The only change to the map is the erasure of the De Wit imprint and its replacement with the Renard imprint (evidence of this erasure is still noticeable on the map).
Reiner and Josua Ottens revised this sea chart in 1745 by removing the Neptune vignette and inserting a detailed map of the area around the Cape of Good Hope.
Norwich Map #254. Tooley [under De Witt], p. 124
Condition : In original color with later embellishments to the cartouches. Very Fine Condition. A visually pleasing map with numerous rhumb lines and compass roses that highlight the decorative cartouche and vignette. Some gilt to gridline, compass roses, etc.
