Good example of this early state of Barent Langenes map of South Africa, which first appeared in the 1598 edition of Langenes "Caert-Thresoor", published in Middelburg. The map, one of the earliest to focus just on southern Africa shows good detail along the coastlines, a sea monster in the Atlantic and has a title in a neat cartouche at lower right.
