Lovely map covering the region of modern-day Gabon, Congo, Zaire and Angola. The map is based on Bleau's map of 1662. It is embellished with six sailing ships, and wild animals roaming the interior. The large title cartouche includes several figures and animals.
Tiny bottom fold separation, not affecting map.
