recent arrival
An attractive and well engraved map of the entire continent divided into "kingdoms" according to ancient reports. The map is covered with names of regions and tribes and ethnic groups, with notes such as "Men eaters", "Fugitives" and "this R. is said to have no end". Prepared by Emanuel Bowen for inclusion in Harris's "Collection of Voyages and Travels" the map illustrates how well the coastline of the continent was known and how little was the knowledge of the interior. With a fine title cartouche at lower left, the map has evidence of old folds, with a protective margin at top, but is very decorative.
