AFRICA

Code: M3887

Cartographer: LANGENES Barent

Date: 1600 The Hague

Size: 8.5*12.5 cms

Attractive & rare map of Africa ..interesting for its strange depiction of the Nile, which originates in a large lake south of the Equator. From this lake three large rivers flow to the seas: the Nile to the Mediterranean, the Congo to the Atlantic and what could be the Zambeze to the Indian Ocean. This map is based on the Gastaldi-Ortelius and Mercator models, although it includes the unique feature of a lake along the Equator into which both the two Ptolemaic lakes flow. The sea is engraved in a moiré pattern, and the map is further decorated with a strapwork title cartouche and three sea monsters, including a sea ""lion."" Though not signed, this map was likely engraved by either Jodocus Hondius or Petrus Kaerius, who engraved the majority of the maps of the Caert-thresoor (Map Treasury). This is the scarce first state without degrees of latitude in the borders, published by Cornelius Claesz and printed by Langenes.

This map comes from the first french edition of Langene's Caert Thresor ..here the Atlas is titled 'Thresor de Chartes, contenant les Tableaux de Tous les Pays du Monde'. French text.
