Interesting chart of the Cape of Good Hope from Saint Helena Bay to Mossel Bay. Dutch settlements are mostly confined along the coast and southern regions. The inland regions are depicted as deserts, savannas, forests and mountain ranges with tribal names indicated and a few Boer colonies. Title in both Dutch and French.
Bottom margin trimmed to neatline with paper added to accommodate framing.
