AETHIOPIA INFERIOR VEL EXTERIOR

Code: M4514

Cartographer: Blaeu Family

Date: 1690 Amsterdam

Size: 38.5*50 cms

Superb map of Southern Africa with full original colour

Copper engraving first published in 1635 by Blaeu in Amsterdam. Published shortly before the first Dutch settlement in the region. The map was largely based on Portuguese exploration, both real and imagined. The area shown is from the Congo River basin around the Cape of Good Hope and up the east coast as far as northern present-day Mozambique. Information on the interior is sparse, reflecting the lack of knowledge the Europeans had about the interior of Africa. Unlike many other maps which are filled in with fanciful or fictitious information, this map more accurately portrays actual knowledge.

Much decoration with sailing ships and animals from elephants to monkeys dotted all over the map.

The cartouche depicts two native Africans holding up an ox skin bearing the map title. At their feet are monkeys and tortoises.
