Small woodblock map of the continent. It depicts the Nile's origins in twin lakes located near the "Motes Lunae". It excludes the Horn of Africa and the Cape of Good Hope, but many kingdoms of Central and North Africa are shown. On a sheet of German text with a macabre illustration on the verso of a man roasting a headless man on a spit. Reference Norwich #5. Small worm hole in map, else very good.
