A small map of the continent with the typical inaccuracies of eighteenth century cartography. The map conforms to the twin lake configuration for the source of the Nile. The cartouche includes the pyramids and merchants purchasing ivory, while tiny animals roam the interior and ships sail the seas.
A crisp impression on a bright sheet with light toning along the edges of the sheet.
