Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding.

About this Item: Nicolas Sanson c. 1656, Paris, 1656. Edition : First edition., Full contemporary calf, expertly rebacked with spine in six compartments of raised bands and finely-gilt motifs, morocco label on two, edges speckled red. , This atlas was dedicated to the Superintendent of Finances at the time, Nicolas Fouquet. Regarding a map of South and Central Africa published the year before (which bears resemblance to this map of South Africa--?Pays, et Costes des Caffres?--in particular), Norwich writes: ?This map, although a fine example of cartography, is based on very little information; for example, the desert-like coast of South West Africa is presented as a land rich in rivers. The fictitious states are given fictitious boundaries and the interior is marked with large cities such as Vigiti Magna and Monomotapa. This information led to subsequent exploration, in search of these fabulous cities. Although the map is dated three years after the foundation of a settlement at the Cape by Jan van Riebeeck, no mention is made of any European settlement anywhere in the south.?, Size : 4to, Recent stencilled title. Complete with 18 maps of Africa and its territories, in original outline colour., References : Tooley IV:103; Tooley Africa 100 (Peyrounin edition); Norwich 37 & 158., P. 1-96. Lower right corner of the first eight leaves strengthened, otherwise a very good copy, maps and text are clean and crisp. In protective cloth slipcase. Seller Inventory # B2984
