Charming map of the legendary land of the Christian king, Prester John. The Nile is shown with its source in the twin lakes of Zaire and Zaflan. A large strap work title cartouche decorates. French text on verso.
Nice impression with attractive later color. Fine example less a little soiling at right margin.
