Henrik de Leth was successor to the Visscher firm and a skilled engraver as well as a mapseller and publisher. This handsome map is based on the work of the important French cartographer Guillaume de l'Isle. It is a very detailed and fascinating map of northeastern Africa, the Red Sea and the Arabian peninsula showing the political divisions and kingdoms. The Nile originates in the Lake de Danee.
Fine original coloring and a superb impression.
