SEUTTER, Matthäus.
Africa Iuxta Navigationes et Observationes Recentissimas Aucta.
1735. Augsburg, c.1730. Original colour. 500 x 575mm. Narrow top margin. A large and decorative map, although, according to Tooley, 'extraordinarily inaccurate', with the Nile extending further south than Lake Zaire, and every inch of the map filled with fictitious detail. A delightful title cartouche, designed by Gottfried Rogg with a dragon, crocodile, parrots and pyramids, fills the lower left corner. TOOLEY: p.110; NORWICH: 80.
Bookseller: Altea Antique Maps [London, United Kingdom]
