I don´t sell facsimiles or copies. Dapper/Van Meurs, 1668, Regna Congo et Angola. Olfert Dapper / Jacob van Meurs. Image 28,5x34,5cm, page 31,5x37,5cm. Lovely map covering the region of modern-day Gabon, Congo, Zaire and Angola.

The map is based on Blaeu's map of 1662. It is embellished with six sailing ships, and wild animals roaming the interior.

The large title cartouche includes several figures and animals. Published in the first edition of Olfert Dapper´s "Naukeurige Beschrijvingen der Afrikaensche gewesten" and "Naukeurige beschrijvinge der Afrikaensche Eylanden". Olfert Dappers Description of Africa was an ethnographic book which offered a detailed description of the parts of Africa known to Europeans in the mid-seventeenth century.

Despite the work being regarded as one of the most important and detailed seventeenth-century publications on Africa, Dapper himself never actually visited the continent. Instead, he relied on the reports of Jesuit missionaries and Dutch explorers.

The Description of Africa was first published in 1668 by Jacob van Meurs in Amsterdam. Some minor repairs in the margin, not affecting the image. I sell original maps, often several centuries old, and they therefore will have signs of age and use.
