Condition Rating

A very attractive map of southern Africa depicting the area just prior to the settlement of the Cape Province by the Dutch. The area shown is from the Congo River basin around the Cape of Good Hope and up the east coast as far as northern present-day Mozambique.
A fair number of coastal names are shown, including Mozambique Island, which was an important re-supply point for ships sailing to India and points east. To the north, one of the Ptolemaic lakes thought to be the source of the Nile is shown.
As you might expect, information on the interior is sparse, reflecting the lack of knowledge the Europeans had about the interior of Africa. Unlike many other maps which are filled in with fanciful or fictitious information, this map more accurately portrays actual cartographic knowledge.
That is not to say that there aren't any wild animals on display, there are elephants, monkeys, and cattle, along with sailing ships and a decorative title cartouche.
