Title : AFRIQVE Par le Sr. Sanson d'Abbeville Geographe du Roy.
Map maker : Abbé Nicolas Lenglet Dufresnoy  (from Sanson).
Date : Paris, ca 1716.
Size : 5.7 x 6.5 inches. / 14.5 x 16.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured

Description :This map is often confused with the Nicolas Sanson map of Africa of 1656 (Betz #86). In Paris in 1716, a copy of the Sanson map appeared in Methode Pour Etudier La Geographie by Abbé Nicolas Lenglet Dufresnoy (1674-1755), published in Paris by Charles Estienne Hochereau. There were subsequent editions of the atlas, with this map, in Paris and in Amsterdam.
This Dufresnoy map is slightly smaller in size than the 1656 Sanson map. The map is further distinguished by having no imprint for Sanson's engraver, Peyrounin. The geography of this Dufresnoy map contains greater detail than of the 1656 Sanson, and it is generally modeled after Sanson's 1650 folio map of Africa.
Betz, see # 86 (Sanson), p. 298. Betz, Richard L., with Penelope W. Betz. The Mapping of Africa: A Cartobibliography of Printed Maps of the African Continent to 1700. 't Goy-Houten, The Netherlands: HES & De Graaf Publishers, 2007.
Condition : Very fine condition.
