Frederick de Wit Map of Africa Totius Africae around 1690 ORIGINAL
Map measures 24 x 20 inches and is original. In my pictures i have done my best to show all the signs that this is an original period map. Picture two shows the map in negative this highlights the paper chain lines which shows the paper type is very old as this was a paper technique used prior to 1775. Image three and four identify the plate marks close to the edge. Image 4 and 5 show the age of the back binding.

All images show the quality of the lettering etc only achieved by early techniques. As to be expected for something around 330 years old the map has traces of foxing and a small chip on paper as per picture 7 but overall in very good condition.

This map was produced around 1685. The map covers Africa, parts of Arabia parts of the Atlantic, Indian, and Mediterranean.
