Africa Juxta Navigationes et Observat: Recentissimas Aucta.
1750 - Augsburg, Tobias Conrad Lotter, c.1750, Fine original colour. 210 x 270mm. A small and very decorative map, from the 'Atlas Minor', which is, 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, with a dragon, snake, lion, crocodile, parrots and pyramids, fills the lower left corner. It was engraved by his son-in-law and successor, Tobias Conrad Lotter, who also published this example. TOOLEY: p.110; NORWICH: 80.
