Very rare two sheet map of Africa, published by Hulsius. This is the second state with below the scale "C. de lopo Gonsalves", but with the same date 1602 as the first edition.
The map is in fact the first map to include recent Dutch discoveries in West Africa. The basis for much of the coastal information and place names is derived from Filippo Pigafetta’s map of Africa. (Rome, 1591).

The German writer Levinus Hulsius compiled an extensive collection of accounts of explorers' voyages, published ultimately in twenty-six parts.
Eight years after de Bry began the publication of his Great Voyages', Levin Hulsius, stimulated by the success of the Bry's work, began the publication of a similar collection in quarto. Hulsius is credited with having exercised better judgment in his selections and translations than the de Bry.
Reference: Betz, Africa, 48.2.
