Map of East Africa
Aethiopuia Superior vel Interior vulga Abissinorum sive Presbiterioannis Imperior
Various species of animal are illustrated on the map.
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.
