    Charming small map of the northwest tip of Africa with Fez showing as the principal city. The map was engraved by the brothers Ambrose and Ferdinand Arsenius who had been assistants to Frans Hogenburg and co-engravers of Ortelius' folio Theatrum. The maps were copied from Philip Galle's 1598 edition of the Epitome and were considered superior to Galle's maps. This series of maps was accompanied by text by Michel Coignet and was published in Antwerp by Jan van Keerbergen. Latin text on verso.

Condition Description: A nice impression and attractive color on watermarked paper with a chip in top right corner that has been professionally repaired with old paper.

Ref: King (2nd Edition) pp. 86-87; Van der Krogt (Vol. III) #8615:333.
