Click image to zoom old map image in.

Title : Nova Africa descriptio..
Map maker : DE WIT, F..
Date : Amsterdam, 1660.
Size : 17.1 x 21.7 inches. / 43.5 x 55.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :De Wit's rare "carte figures"- map of Africa, with decorative panels showing birdseye views of Alcair, Alexandria, Alger, Tunis, Tanger and Ceuta across the top. Four panels on each side show figures in national costume.
In 1660 De Wit prepared and published a set of maps of the four continents with decorative figures on each side border and town views across the top.
These are among the earliest known maps by De Wit. In designing this map of Africa, De Wit was influenced by the Visscher map states (1631, 1636, and 1652) of Van den Keere's map of 1614. De Wit used Visscher's allegorical depiction of the continent of an African woman sitting on a crocodile for his title cartouche.
This map of Africa was issued separately and, like all separately issued maps, is not common.

State 3 of the map, without the date and with the number 3 in the upper right corner.

Condition : In fine condition.

ID: 190111
