Product Description

This striking original antique map of Africa is based largely on Homann's 1715 map. Seutter was apprenticed to Homann prior to establishing his own publishing business in the early 18th century. The map is typical of the period with the information in southern Africa being largely fictitious and enormous lakes depicted in central Africa. The Nile is shown originating in the south at lakes Zaire and Zaflan and also continuing further south through a twisted river system with its headwaters in Bed Lac. The Abyssinian province of Amhara is incorrectly shown in the southern kingdom of Monomotapa. The splendid decorative cartouche features natives, pyramids, and exotic animals with the title surmounted by a fierce dragon. Beutifull hand coloring on watermarked handmade paper. From Atlas Novus.
