click here to view a large version in a separate window

This map and the three following items come from the French edition of Kolben's classic work on the Cape first published by Lakeman in 1727. Each has its title in French as well as Dutch indicating that these are from the edition published by J.Catluffe in 1741. They are among the earliest of the detailed maps of the Cape hinterland. While owing something to those of Van Der Aa and Francois Valentyn they reflect the two years that Kolben spent at the Cape between 1704 and 1713. The above map depicts the coast and inland areas from Cape Aguilhas to Mozambique.
