Aethiopia Inferior vel Exterior . . . .

Attractive map of Southern Africa, shortly before the first Dutch settlement in the region.

The area shown is from the Congo River basin around the Cape of Good Hope and up the east coast as far as northern present-day Mozambique. Many coastal names shown, including Mozambique Island, which was an important stop over for ships sailing to India and points east. To the north, one of the Ptolemaic lakes thought to be the source of the Nile is shown. Information on the interior is sparse, reflecting the lack of knowledge the Europeans had about the interior of Africa.

This map can be distinguished from Blaeu's map of the same title by lack of the sailing ship to the west of Madagascar along the equator, which is present on the Blaeu.

The present example is a late issue of the map, without text on the verso.

Tooley, p.58.
