Click image to zoom old map image



Title : Carte Particuliere de L'Egypte, de l Nubie et de L'Abbisinie..
Map maker : HATELAIN, Henry Abraham.
Date : Amsterdam, 1719.
Size : 15.4 x 20.1 inches. / 39.0 x 51.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :This (large) beautiful map is based on the work of the important French cartographer Guillaume Delisle. It is a very detailed and fascinating view of northeastern Africa, the Red Sea and the Arabian Peninsula showing the political divisions and kingdoms.
The Blue Nile originates in the mountains near the L. de Dambee in the approximate location of Lake Tana, but there is however no sign of Lake Victoria at the head of the White Nile.
The desert west of Egypt is filled with comments and little tents and castles distinguish the nomadic tribes and other permanent settlements.
There was increased interest in this region in the early 18th century that coincided with increased commercial activity. By this time European knowledge of the coastlines of the African continent and Arabia had advanced considerably, but the interiors still remained largely speculative.

Condition : Good. Expert repairs on centerfold, a nearly invisible small tear on upper and lower margin. 1 or 2 small stains on map surface. Dark, crisp, impression on a full sheet of hand laid paper with wide margins.
