Title : Africae nova Tabula..
Map maker : HONDIUS, J.Jr..
Date : Amsterdam, 1623.
Size : 17.8 x 22.0 inches. / 45.3 x 55.8 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :A second state of this very rare "carte à figures"- map. Decorated with the four decorative borders by Jodocus Hondius Jr.
This remarkable map of Africa was first offered in 1619 as a separately published map and is based on a map by his father, Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612) of 1606. While the general geography for this map is taken from Willem Blaeu’s wall map of 1608 and his 1617 folio map, this example represents a considerable advance in the detail and accuracy of Africa from Hondius’ prior maps.
Geographical improvements include a more rounded southern Cape, the naming of the Rio de Spiritu Santo and of the CuamaRiver, the insertion of Zimbaos and alteration in the shape of Madagascar. The Kingdom of Monomotapa fills the entire southern tip of Africa.
However, the map is also filled with fictitious rivers and mountains and shows the origin of the Nile conforming to the Ptolemaic tradition of twin lakes located below the equator, as is typical of 17th Century cartography.
Condition : Cropped on the neat line sometimes just effecting the printed area, carefully re-margined for protective reason. The outer left and right neat lines re-drawn. Centerfold reinforced. For the rest in good condition. Very attractive map.
