Original map of 1776 featuring Africa edited by the prestigious italian editor Zatta from Venice. Curious communication in the lower right corner: "La posizione di questa Carta essendo in molte parti diversa dalle altre finora uscite, e sopra tutto dalla più recente del S.r Janvier, si avverte, che tal varietà non proviene da nostro arbitrio, ma dalle ultime Osservazioni dell'Accademia Francese, a cui s'uniformano le più moderne Carte particolari dell'africa": "This map of Africa is different from the others, above all from the most recent of Janvier. These differences come from the last Observations of French Academy which gives directions for the modern maps."

Nice coeval coloring. Nice cartridge.
