L' Afrique divisee en ses principaux Etats

Code: M2847

Cartographer: JANVIER Jean

Date: 1762 Paris

Size: 30*44 cms

Handsome copper engraved map of the continent showing the extent of knowledge in the mid 18th century. While mostly accurate, it does have remnants of fantasy such of the twin lake source of the Nile in the 'Mts de la Lune' which in this depiction is quite a bit north of the Equator. 'C. de Bonne Esperance' and 'Stellembos Pic' are the only settlements marked in southern Africa, which is occupied by the Hottentot tribes. The pictorial title cartouche features pine trees, a leopard and a crocodile.

very good condition
