click here to view a large version in a separate window

In about 1678 Herman Moll, a German, came to London and worked as an engraver for other publishers in the city. He soon set up his own business publishing atlases and also separate maps of all parts of the world. His work was varied, ranging from miniature maps to large very decorative wall maps. This interesting map divides the coast of northern Africa into two parts - the upper part of the map shows Vera Cruz to Tripoli while the lower part shows Tripoli to the Holy Land. Some coastal detail is shown along with inland detail of the Nile including reference to the Pyramids. An inset map in the upper left corner shows the port of Oran to include sounding depths and a scale in English miles.
