Description:

Nice example Nicolas Sanson's second map of Africa, with significant corrections and improvements, published by the map maker to the King of France and the most influential map maker of the mid-17th Century.

Nicolas Sanson was perhaps the most influential map make of the mid-17th Century.  His maps were copied, both in France and abroad, for much of the rest of the 17th and early 18th centuries, including by such map makers as Richard Blome, Giovanni Rossi and others.

While the first edition of Sanson's map appears on the market with some frequency, this second map is much scarcer on the market.
