(Africa, Continent, Madagascar, Egypt, Nubia, Mozambique, Guinea, Nile River, Red Sea, Sea Monsters). Issued [1582] 1599, Venice by Giovanni Lorenzo D’Anania/ Ruscelli & Rosaccio. Printed by the heirs of Melchior Sessa. Fourth edition, second issue using the re-engraved 1582 plate in 1598-99. Italian text on verso. One of the earliest, readily obtainable, separately printed 16th century maps of Africa. Also interesting for the depiction of the entire Arabian peninsula as well as the Brazilian coast at the bottom left. Source of the Nile shown as two giant lakes south of the equator, surrounded by inevitable mountains. Note the elongated shape of the Arabian peninsula. Sea monster in the ocean. Clean impression, faint minor show-through at top as typical, faint hints of light corner creasing visible only on verso, which is in no way visually distracting. Otherwise entirely pleasing example for display. 9 1/4″ H x 12 1/2″ W. Engraved area measures c. 7 1/4″ H x 10″ W. 20.2 Noting the map is identical to the 1582 D’Anania map aside from the addition of the thin line circling the continent. Also noting the map was used interchangeably between several works making the exact identification between it and the 1595 Botero issue challenging. 22 (Botero issue noting it is identical to the Porro – See Tooley below).
