Cape District Cape of Good Hope.

Wyld's Reissue of Faden's Detailed Map of the Cape Town Region.

1838 edition of this highly detailed map of the Dutch Colony on the Cape of Good Hope, first published in 1782.

This attractive map gives an idea of contemporary knowledge of the area from "Klipping Eyland" to "Cape Falso". Of note is the addition in this edition of "Muyzenberg about 1300 feet high." About 20 farms and settlements are named as well as Constantia and Stellen bosch. The Drakenstein mountains form the eastern boundary of the Cape.

The cartouche is a cliff bearing the title with palms, huts, and an elephant in the foreground. A key identifies points on the mainland and another the islands and bays.
