PAR J. LUILLIER Mise aujour par le Sr. G. Danet A PARIS Pont Notre Dame a la Sphere Royale Avec privilege du Roy.
A large, very decorative and rare copperplate map by J. Luillier, revisited and published by Guilliame Danet in Paris, 1732. The map layout is curious, as the "centerfold" is not as expected in the center of the map, but rather about a third from the left margin, with two extra folds afterwards to the right.
The present map has many interesting decorative features. In the upper left is a stunning, large title cartouche with name of the cartographer, Danet and the date, 1732, showing a white lady and a black man (probably a freed slave, as he holds broken chains in his hands) and some animals (the head of a lion, a serpent, a scorpion and some shells). There is also a basket filled with tusks.
The border of the map is composed of a sea shell decor with coast-of-arms of various countries, including Europe. In the upper right part is part of India and the Maldives. In the lower left side north eastern Brazil is shown. There is a small "advertisement" in the lower right corner.
Danet was the son in law to Nicolas de Fer and was one of the successors to him. This map is not listed in either Norwich or Tooley?s Maps of the African Continent.
The map has narrow margins, and a few repaired marginal tears. Due to the short margins some of the tears ended up in the borders, but the map has not had long tears into the image or any other damage. 19.1 x 28.1 inches. 48.6 x 71.4 cm.
Not in Norwich or Tooley.
Condition : Good condition. Three short repaired marginal tears, just entering image due to narrow margins (as issued). Signs of old tape residue in lower margin, not affecting image. Repaired tear in lower right corner on fold, to the left of the advertisement.
