recent arrival
John Ogilby's work "Africa" was based on the Dutch publication of two years earlier by Jacob van Meurs of Olfert Dapper's "Naukeurige Beschrijvinghe Der Afrikaensche ...". Using, in the main, the same copperplate maps and views, this translation was the best English account of the continent to that time and was intended to be part of a series of atlases of all parts of the world, which, in fact, was never completed. The maps, with title cartouches supported by native figures, animals and so on, and the plates were finely engraved and represent evocative European perceptions of the regions as known during the seventeenth century. A detailed map of Madagascar and the adjacent mainland coast.
