Nova Aegypti Tabula : O.Dapper / J.Ogilby

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Egypt with the Nile and Red Sea prominent, oriented with north to the left of the plate. John Ogilby's work "Africa" was based on the Dutch publication of two years earlier, by Jacob van Meurs, of Olfert Dapper's "Naukeurige Beschrijvinghe Der Afrikaensche ...". Using, in the main, the same copperplate maps and views, this translation was the best English account of the continent to that time. It was intended to be part of a series of atlases of all parts of the world, which, in fact, was never completed. The maps, with title cartouches supported by native figures, animals and so on, and the plates were finely engraved and represent evocative European perceptions of the regions as known during the seventeenth century.
