Cartographer: HONDIUS Family

Date: 1620c Amsterdam

Size: 34.5*50 cms

Stunning map of western Africa from Senegal, Rio Senega, to Cape Lopez on the Gulf of Guinea just below the equator. The map reflects the Portuguese exploration and settlement in the region and includes a large inset of the Island of St. Thomas. This map is one of six new maps of Africa to be included in Hondius' first edition of Mercator's Atlas. It is beautifully embellished in Hondius' style with strapwork title cartouches, a Portuguese ship and native sailing boat, and fully engraved seas in a moiré style. Latin text on verso.

Beautiful, early impression and beautiful original coloring on a full sheet of thick paper with watermark and very wide margins.

There is some archival paper repairs on some oxidation cracks.Now stablised.

Overall very attractive map
