Aethiopia Inferior, Vel Exterior. ... : G. Blaeu

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An influential map which formed the cartographic outline for Southern Africa throughout the century. The map clearly displays the features which gave the Blaeu family their deserved reputation as the leading cartographers of the period - the map is finely engraved, elegantly designed, well printed on good quality paper and with attractive original hand-colour. Elephants appear in East Africa, while more pastoral creatures appear in the Cape. Two native figures hold an animal skin aloft bearing the title. The sea areas support finely drawn sailing ships and elegant scrolled lettering.
