Carte de l'Egypte de la Nubie de l'Abissinie. (Northeastern Africa, Kingdom of Agnor, Ethiopia, Nubia, Egypt, Nile River, Tripoli, Desert of Seth). Issued 1792, Amsterdam, by Jan Elwe. Fine and uncommon 18th century engraved folio sheet map with original hand color. Map includes Eastern Africa as well as the Arabian Peninsula.Much if not all the interior topographical detail ranges from inaccurate to speculative, and includes many engraved notes about Kingdoms, climate & topography, features such as a mountain range where "it is said are many emeralds", a gold mine, etc. Arabia has a profusion of detail, including a vast mountain range down the middle, various Kingdoms with boundaries, dozens of places names, etc. Map displays age wear as well as some noticeable wrinkling and old small repairs near bottom of centerfold. The centerfold has been backed long ago with old paper.
Bottom blank margin with a chip at center, but this is outside the engraved area and could easily be hidden with matting. Great antique map entirely worthy of hanging for display, despite the condition issues described it still has a fine visual appearance with nice age patina. Scarce map in any condition.
