Map by le Vaillant of his travels in the Cape, dissected into 21 sections and laid on linen.
His route and halting places are clearly shown. His published narrative, which first appeared in both French and English in 1790, is one of the earliest accounts of travel by Europeans in southern Africa and is prized for its illustrations of native peoples and wildlife.
Mendelssohn, I, 892, 889, 890: 'His description is unique for this period, as little information respecting these regions had been published up to this date'.
Not all editions had the map. Mendelssohn claims the first edition was in 1796, which was issued with a map, not issued in this earlier edition 1795. The second expedition was to Namaqualand, Damaraland, Bechcuanaland and the Kalahari Desert.
It provides an interesting and early narrative of South Africa at a time when it was little known.
Norwich #181 lists an English version.
Condition : Good. Dissected and laid on linen. No covers. Some age-toning.
