Barbaria ... : J. Hondius

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An interesting composite plate of three maps - the main covering the whole of North Africa from Morocco to Egypt with inset details of the town, harbour and fortifications of ancient Carthage and another displaying the Nile delta. Jodocus Hondius continued publication of Gerhard Mercator's "Atlas" project from 1606 when he engraved new, and republished earlier, maps by the great cartographer. The series formed the basis for one of the major atlas projects of the century with maps republished by Jan Jansson and other Dutch publishers over 50 years later. This map is from a French text edition. An attractive and fresh example.
