The Mapping of Africa systematically categorizes and provides an overview of all printed maps showing the entire African continent published from 1508 to 1700. The author has undertaken a review of the literature, conducted an exhaustive investigation in many major libraries and private collections, analyzed these findings, and then compiled information on 174 distinctly separate maps of the African continent. The Introduction contains information about the mapping of Africa before 1508, important world maps which include Africa, and a presentation of the major cartographic models developed for this book. Richly illustrated in full color.
