This is a later edition of the ever so detailed map of southern Africa by Guillaume Delisle. The map spans from just north of the equator to the southern point of Africa and includes Madagascar and numerous small islands in the Indian Ocean. Locations of native villages and kingdoms areas of mineral wealth and information concerning European trade load the map with meticulous detail. Political and coastal borders have been hand colored throughout. This map displays a perfect representation of Delisle's scientific approach to map making which helped to promote his works of Africa as a basis for many other maps to come.

Condition: Map is in A condition with a light spot bottom left and full margins.
