A handsome Ptolemaic map of Northern Africa originally engraved by Gerard Mercator. Interesting features include the twin lake sources of the Nile located near the Lune Montes. The Niger River is prominently featured in Libya with its source in several interior lakes and shown disappearing under several mountain ranges and flowing underground. There is a strapwork title cartouche and compass rose decorate the chart.

The condition is very good with only a couple of tiny spots in the blank margins and a professionally repaired tear just entering the border at the left.
