Title : AFRICÆ Noua TABVLA..
Map maker : Mariette Pierre (attr.).
Date : Paris, c.1650.
Size : 1.4 x 18.3 inches. / 3.6 x 46.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured

Description :A very rare, decorative French map of Africa . Only known example. Apart from its rarity, this is a highly decorative, finely engraved map with several ships in south Atlantic and numerous animals within Africa. Numerous placenames throughout Africa.

Little is known about this map. It has no imprint for either the cartographer or engraver and is thus difficult to identify. The map is not described in Tooley's Collector's Guide to Maps of Africa nor in Loeb-Larocque's more detailed article on the French derivatives of Dutch maps, but it is depicted in Tooley's 1972 Sequence of Maps of Africa as plate no. IX. Tooley does not provide an attribution for this map, but simply identifies it as being by an anonymous mapmaker. Burden believes the similar Americas map is by Pierre Mariette, as he noted that the Americas map appeared on two occasions in Theatre Geographique de France which had editions published by Pierre Mariette in 1650 and 1653.
While this map appeared in Pierre Mariette's Theatre Geographique de France, it is possible that this map was actually made by a Dutch engraver, possibly even Cornelis Danckerts, who was known to work on occasion with Pierre Mariette during this period. The engraving style and the decorative elements all suggest that it may be a Dutch-produced map. As this is purely conjecture, the map's attribution is still with Pierre Mariette. ¤
