Tabu Nova Partis Africae : M. Waldseemuller / L. Fries

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A good example of this reduced version of the first map of Southern Africa. Martin Waldseemuller's map of 1513 was made up from Portuguese sources and shows the continent from the equator south. Lorenz Fries published a reduced size version of the Waldseemuller map adding vignettes in the interior including a dragon, serpents, elephant, and enthroned kings. Acknowledging the role played by the Portuguese in making this area known the engraver has included a portrait of King Emanuel riding a sea creature in the Indian Ocean. A good impression of this important map.
