Antique map titled 'Isle de Madagascar ou de St. Laurens. Tiree de Sanutu &c'. Antique map of Madagascar, first published by Sanson in 1657. Sanson notes the source of his map as Livio Sanuto and others. Livio Sanuto was a mid-16th century Italian cosmographer and mathematician who contributed and was one of the primary map makers of his time. Sanuto created the first Atlas of Africa ( Geografia dell 'Africa) published in 1588 in Venice, which was without question the most accurate work of its time and formed the basis for the mapping of Africa for the next century.
