Africa : H. Moll

click here to view a large version in a separate window

This is a charming map of the continent with a plethora of islands in the Indian Ocean . The Nile shows its correct source in the Abyssinia highlands; however, the twin lakes of Zaire and Zaflan are still faintly engraved just north of the Luna Mts, and several other spurious lakes are faintly engraved in the Sahara region. Herman Moll was born in 1654 of German descent. He first came to London to work as an engraver for several publishers, and in the late 1670s set up his own business publishing atlases as well as maps of all parts of the world. His earliest known cartographic work is a series of small maps for the geography book of Sir Jonas Moore, published in 1683. Over the next fifty years he produced numerous works on classical, British and foreign geography, illustrated with maps of varying scales and detail yet in clear, distinctive style. Though his later work lacks the flamboyance of earlier productions, it is nevertheless still very pleasing to the eye.
