Africae Tabula II : L. & J. Sanuto

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A fine impression of this elegantly engraved, rare and important map - the earliest "modern" map of this area of southern Morocco and the most precise of the sixteenth century. Livio Sanuto's "Geographia" stands alone as a publishing achievement at a time when virtually all atlas production was concentrated in northwest Europe. Italian engravers had produced superb loose sheet maps during the previous 40 years and Sanuto's atlas, the first devoted to such a detailed delineation of the continent of Africa, displays, in its 12 maps, the finest quality of engraving, printing and presentation. The map extends from around Essaouira to El Jadida on the Atlantic coast inland to beyond Marrakech. Ships and sea monsters appear against the stippled ocean. The sheet is trimmed close, as issued, with each side margin reinforced but no detail missing, otherwise, a fine example of a map rarely offered on the market now.
