The rare first edition of De La Rochette's influential and very detailed map, published by William Faden, shows a fine combination of line and stipple engraving, allowing physical features and relief to be vividly depicted. Rivers, roads and settlements are also clearly marked on this fascinating large-scale map that extends from Klipping Island south to the Cape and False Bay. A decorated title cartouche shows an elephant hunt.
