AFRICA NUOVA TAVOLA

Code: M2834

Cartographer: RUSCELLI Girolamo

Date: 1561 Venice

Size: 19*28 cms

This "new" map of the southern part of Africa includes some unusual cartography. It is based on Gastaldi's map of 1548. The continent is very broad and the source of the Nile is shown in three lakes, instead of the normal two. Madagascar, Isola de S. Lorenzo, is oddly shaped and surround by smaller islands. It is engraved in the typical Italian style with stippled sea, wide rivers and anthill-like mountains.

From La Geografia di Claudio Tolomeo.

An important early map in very good condition.

REF Norwich #151; Tooley (MCC-30) #S9.
