Aethiopia inferior vel exterior. Partes magis Septentrionales, quae hic desiderantur, vide in tabula Aethiopia Superioris
The map shows various animal species and ships on the sea.
Dr Olfert Dapper (1636-1689) published a large number of books after 1663. He wrote a history of the city of Amsterdam and furnished the first Dutch translation of Herodotus. But he is known particularly for his many descriptions of foreign lands which he compiled from various sources, without ever seeing the countries he wrote about for himself. This plate is taken from a description of Africa.
