Striking early map of Africa by Sanson.
Richly engraved and highly detailed, with nice detail in the interior, including a remarkable (and highly inaccurate) treatment of the source of the Nile.
The son of famous French cartographer Nicolas Sanson, Guillaume (1633-1703) carried on his father's work. Like his sire, he was a court geographer to Louis XIV. He often worked in partnership with another prominent cartographer of the time, Hubert Jaillot.
