L' Africa : G. Cassini

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive and uncommon map of all Africa dominated by a large pictorial title cartouche showing a bare-breasted African figure sitting on a crocodile with a serpent and lion lurking nearby. The map appeared in a scarce Italian atlas publication and displays how little knowledge of the interior was known at this time - a situation to change dramatically over the next one hundred years.
mapmaker: G. Cassini
place and date of publication: Rome 1788
medium and colour: copperplate, Original colour
size in mm: 330 by 470mm (13 by 18.5 inches).
ref: 43256

Price: £ 320£ 192
