An attractive map of the coastline of present-day Tunisia and Libya. It is based on the map of Abraham Ortelius with the same title, which in turn was based on that of Giacomo Gastaldi of the whole of Africa and several ancient texts including Diodorus, Siculus, Plinius, Virgilius, Appianus, Halicarnasseus, Athenaeus and Herodotus. The map extends into the Mediterranean Se to include part of Sicily and Malta. Ornately decorated with a fine title cartouche and large descriptive text lower left. Van der Krogt, P.
