Rare first state of this decorative map of Africa, published by Frederick De Wit in Amsterdam.
The map includes decorative panels showing birdseye views of Alcair, Alexandria, Alger, Tunis, Tanger and Ceuta across the top and 8 costumed figures along the sides. Two large ornate cartouches.
Includes marvelous detail in the interior of the continent. The present edition is the rare first state of the map, with the date in the second cartouche (removed in state 2) and the number 3 not yet included in the upper right corner (added in state 3).
