AFRICAE NOVA TABULA AUCT J HONDIO

Sold

Scarce smaller versions of the folio map by Jodocus Hondius. It appeared in Cloppenburg's edition of Mercator's 'Atlas Minor', with maps engraved in slightly larger format than standard Dutch pocket atlases by Pieter van den Keere.

Beautifully engraved with lots of detail and decoration..Ships, sea monsters and cartouche.

First published in 1630, there was a third edition in 1636 before a hiatus until an edition in 1673, suggesting the plates were supressed.

Excellent hand colour

Very good condition.
