An unusual and attractive map of Southern Africa "Partie De L'Afrique Audela De L'Equateur, Comprenant Le Congo, Le Cafrerie &C" set in a framed page of text. Louis Charles Desnos' publication of Brion De La Tour's map of southern Africa extends from the equator southwards. The map itself measures 26 x 23 cms. The sheet is of interest in that it is the product of three different printing processes - the map was separately engraved and is printed within an elegantly designed engraved framework border with two pasted-on panels of text describing the region. This technique allowed for the map to be reprinted in different format atlases, and the frame to be used to set off other engraved maps. On the map, original colour delicately defines the regions whilst the title is shown in a decorative surround at lower right.
