AFRICA AFRICA ACCORDING TO THE LATEST AUTHORITIES
Guthrie map of Africa. A virtual treasure trove of the common inaccuracies, misconceptions and mythmaking of the late 17th century. Somehow, Guthrie managed to fill in the entirety of Africa with detail - a feat not accomplished by fact-based mapmakers until almost 100 years later. Important piece. Original strike and outlining.
From A New Geographical, Historical, and Commercial Grammar and Present State of the Several Kingdoms of the World, illustrated with a correct set of maps by William Guthrie Esq. Published by GG and J Robinson for Charles Dilly, London.
