Carte d’Afrique Dressee pour l’usage du Roy…

This map is one of the series of revised maps that L’Isle first issued in 1722. In this redrawn version, L’Isle makes further improvements. He separates the Senegal and Niger rivers, making the latter rise in the Kingdom of Tombut and flow eastwards to Lake Bournou. Inland from Zanzibar he inserts a large lake, Moravi (Nyasa), with the mountains of Lapata—the spine of the world. A typical L’Isle cartouche is drawn at the top right corner.

Hydrophylacium Africae precipuum, in Montibus Lunae Situm Lacus et Flumina praecipua fundens ubi et nova inventio Originis Nili describitur.

Kircher was a Jesuit priest and polymath whose theories included the notion that the world’s oceans were interconnected by a vast underground network. He believed great lakes lay below mountain ranges and one lake is apparent here as the centrepiece of the map. This, influenced by the reports of an imaginative exploring traveller Paez lead Kircher to summit that the lake was the source of the Blue Nile. This is a fine example of a map by “the last true Renaissance man.” Condition is very good. Conservator’s japanese tissue backing.
