CARTE D'AFRIQUE DRESSEE POUR L'USAGE DU ROI PAR GUILLAUME DELISLE

Code: M4033

Cartographer: DE L'ISLE Family

Date: 1787 Paris

Size: 49*63 cms

Good large folio map of Africa by De L'Isle and successors.

The map is a rare re-issue of the Delisle map of 1722. In his first map of the continent in 1700, Delisle re-measured the Mediterranean, being the first to establish its correct longitude, and thus to give a correct picture of Africa's northern coast. He was the first to discard Lake Zaire and Zaflan, as inherited from Ptolemy, and the first to show the correct source of the Blue Nile. In his revised map of 1722, Delisle adds the improvement of the depiction of Lake Myassa (Moravi). As characteristic of the period, emphasis is on the coastal area, which is well delineated. Little was known about the interior of the continent at that time, but Delisle gives interesting information about the locations of native tribes.

This is a newly engraved map after the by Delisle's successor, Phillipe Buache, map published in 1745, this map printed in 1787 with updates on boundaries etc
