Title : AFRIC∆ | nova Tabula | Auct. Jud. Hondio..
Map maker : HONDIUS Jr., Jodocus / JANSSONIUS, Johannes .
Date : Amsterdam, (1623) 1632.
Size : 18.1 x 22.0 inches. / 46.0 x 56.0 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.

Description :An Original Color Example of this scarce carto-figure map in mint condition: Jodocus Hondius Jr. issued this map as part of a new set of maps of the four continents in 1623. These maps closely followed his set of maps of the continents of 1619. It is unclear why these new maps were issued as the 1619 maps were attractive, finely engraved maps, and the information in these 1623 maps was not significantly updated from the information in his 1619 maps.

Like the 1619 map of Africa, the geography for this map is copied from Willem Blaeu's folio-size map of 1617 with the Cuama River originating in the mountains and not in Sachaf Lacus. Overall, however, it was based on a reduction of Blaeu's wall map of 1608. Pieter van den Keere either engraved this map of Africa or was involved in the selection of the engraver. This would likely explain why this map has a similar decorative cartouche to Van den Keere's 1614 map of Africa.

This particular map is the fourth state of 1632. The bottom decorative border is removed. The bottom left cartouche has the imprint of Sumptibus et | typis śneis | Joannis Ianssonij | Amstelodami.1632. There are five known states of this map. All states are considered rare.
