CAIRO THE CITI CAIRUS DE STADT CAIRUS

Code: M2541

Cartographer: OGILBY John

Date: 1670

Size: 24*34cms

Striking copper engraving providing a bird’s-eye view of the city and surrounding countryside, which includes a depiction of the pyramids. The city is viewed from above the west bank of the Nile with the foreground filled with travelers, donkeys, camels and oxen. The view is taken for the most part from Matteo Pagono's view of the city in 1549, which was in turn the basis of Braun and Hogenberg's view. Dapper's important Description of Africa was one of the most important seventeenth century works about the continent.

Wide margins Very good condition.
