De Stadt Cairus : O.Dapper / J.Ogilby / P.Van Der Aa

An attractive view of Cairo shown from east of the Nile with the pyramids and everyday activities in the foreground. This copperplate view was published (without the lettered key) in John Ogilby's work "Africa", based on the Dutch publication of two years earlier, by Jacob van Meurs, of Olfert Dapper's "Naukeurige Beschrijvinghe Der Afrikaensche ...". Following Ogilby's publication a number of the plates later appeared in Leiden to be published by Pieter Van Der Aa in his work, "La Galerie Agreable Du Monde". This particular example has especially wide margins and a blank verso and was perhaps published in composite form by Van Der Aa just before "La Galerie ..." was released as an entity. Koeman's "Atlantes Neerlandici I" does list this Cairo plate as being from "La Galerie ...", but does so with a French title after the given Dutch one. An interesting view of this historical city with a complicated publication history.
