Nuova Esatta Carta Dell Africa : E. Bowen

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A rare and very attractive Italian issue of Emanuel Bowen's distinctive map of the continent of Africa. Marked with regions and their tribal inhabitants, the map looks very detailed but only the coastlines are definitively delineated. Emanuel Bowen was amongst the leading and most popular of English mapmakers active during the third quarter of the eighteenth century although most of his output was of English county maps. His world atlas "A New System Of Geography" comprised good detailed maps of all parts of the known world and was obviously copied here, probably in a pirated edition published in Italy.
