Code: M3246

Cartographer: SANTINI Francois

Date: 1776 Venice

Size: 47.5*64.5 cms

Excellent 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 as the twin lake source of the Nile in the "Montagnes 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.

With 2 small inset maps of Cap de Bonne-Esperance and Isle de France. Ornamental title cartouche featuring palm trees and a lion in the upper left corner.

After Janvier.
