Antique map titled 'Carta dell Africa'. Large and quite scarce Italian map of Africa, reflecting the then-current knowledge of the continent's geography, with large areas left completely blank. Where known, the map gives good detail of the topography, rivers, lakes, and deserts, and locates numerous African tribes. Pencil notation on the reverse reads "Milano McCCXVIII." OCLC lists two examples of the map with date given as 1824, one dated 1837, and one dated 1814, but no listings for an 1818 issue.

Condition: Good. Old folds, some marginal foxing, right margin trimmed to neat line, paper repair on verso. Please study image carefully. 

Date: c.1818

Overall size: 76.5 x 56 cm.
