(Map of Southwestern Africa): Typus orarum maritimarum Guineae, Manicongo & Angolae ultra Promentorium Bonae spei

by Linschoten, Jan (John) van Huygen

Condition: See description


Amsterdam, 1596. A highly decorative map of the southwestern coast of Africa. Overall very good, with early color. Some restoration most evident central verso, few professional wormhole repairs with margins reinforced verso. The map was engraved by Florent van Langren, and the first Dutch edition of Linschoten's "Itinerario..." was published by Cornelis Claesz in 1596. There are coastal views of the islands of Ascension and St. Helena within a strapwork cartouche at the bottom of the map. This is just the western sheet. The image measures 15.25 x 20.5 inches (39 x 52 cm). Two compass roses, decorative script and sailing ships. Coastal town names go inland, in the style of earlier portolan charts..
