This is a stunning very early map of Africa. The map seems to be written in French and provides wonderful detailing that has been hand-colored. This map seems to be from the mid to late 17th century. Being a very old map, you will find foxing as well as corners of the mat ripped & torn. The back shows signs of professional reinforcement.
At sight, the map is 17" x just under 12". Matted to overall size is 21 1/4" x 15 1/4". A very old map that would be a wonderful addition to any collection! Recently picked from the Greater Philadelphia area, I personally hand select each antique, piece of art, jewelry or any other item of interest myself. Please feel free to message with any questions.
