AETHOPIA SUPERIOR VEL INTERIOR VULGO ABISSINORUM SIVE PRESBITERIIOANNIS IMPERIUM

Code: M223

Cartographer: MERIAN Matthaus

Date: 900:/001640

Size: 29*37.5

Splendid map of eastern & central Africa. The map depicts the legendary Christian Kingdom of Prester John. Fabled rivers, elephants,ostriches and monkeys fill the otherwise empty spaces of the unexplored interior. Based on an earlier

map by Blaeu, there is a fair amount of detail on the eastern coast, reflecting the Portuguese and Arab trading interest.Mogadishu, Mombassa, Quiloa (Kilwa) and Mozambique are shown as major towns. Below the equator there are the

two large lakes where the Nile originates. The map is decorated with a title cartouche surrounded by native figures and a decorative scale of miles.Uncoloured as issued. Very good condition.
