This variant is not dated but may have been prepared as late as c.1702." This map is modelled after Frederik de Wit's map of Africa of ±1670 but with a completely different vignette. It is one of the only two maps of before 1700 with J.B. Homann's imprint, then working for i.a. Sandrart and establishing his own firm only in 1702.
