Article descriptionOriginal copper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash when published. A fine and detailled map of continent of Africa with the Mediterranean Sea in the north and the cape of good hope and Madagascar in the south. Ornated with a beautiful title cartouche in the lower left corner, it depicts with some animals and natives of the African continent. At the lower bottom with the engraved ,privileg' and a compass rose in the South Atlantic. The royal privileg gave the publisher the permission to print the map for a decade. The map was published around 1720 for the first time, with the privileg it is very likely printed ca. 1730-40. Overall the map is very good to excellent condition, however the map is verso backed with thin Japan paper, this was very likely done by a previous owner to avoid, that the centre fold of the map is visible. Further the reverse side shows around at the outer margins old paper stripes from older framing.
