Lovely, decorative map showing the coast line of the south east part of Africa, with Madagascar central to the sheet and many smaller islands, including Mauritius, scattered amid the Indian Ocean. The small inset in the right corner shows a close up of the Madagascan coast line and the island of St Mary's. Herman Moll was born in 1654 of German descent. He first came to London to work as an engraver for several publishers, and in the late 1670s set up his own business publishing atlases as well as maps of all parts of the world. His earliest known cartographic work is a series of small maps for the geography book of Sir Jonas Moore, published in 1683. Over the next fifty years he produced numerous works on classical, British and foreign geography, illustrated with maps of varying scales and detail yet in clear, distinctive style. Amongst many geographical works for which Moll provided maps, we believe this map appeared in editions of Thomas Salmon's "Universal Geography ...". An uncommon and interesting map.
