SOLD Totius Africae Accuratissima Tabula


Code: 76733

Title: 'Totius Africae Accuratissima Tabula '.

A fine example of a decorative late seventeenth century Dutch map, finely engraved by Frederick De Wit. The map is very detailed with a comprehensive network of waterways and mountains and so on - mostly fictitious. There are numerous place-names along the coasts and in the interior where lions, elephants and other creatures are shown.

The map is in good condition with a 15 cm lower centerfold restoration and several small chips in the margin well away from the engraved area.
