Aethiopia inferior, vel exterior. This is the standard map of southern Africa throughout the 17th century. It was made by Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) in Amsterdam, 1635. This fine exemplar of the Dutch “golden age” from the Blaeu family firm predates the Dutch settlement of Cape Town by seventeen years. The cartouche shows two Africans holding up an ox hide displaying the title, with monkeys and turtles at the bottom. In this map, the Mountains of the Moon (Lunae Montes) form the northern boundary of a vast region named Monomotapa.
