Chart. Line scale given. This map with some changes is a new ed. of that issued by John Seller in 1675. Seller & Thornton collaborated from 1675 onwards & produced several works including “The English pilot" in which this map appears in 1703. Title cartouche top left is new & has 2 figures of natives, the one on left with 2 children smoking a pipe; figure on the right has a spear & arrows. The view of Table Bay & the Fort across the top of the map are the same. The map is redrawn; the scale is in a simple frame & a key A-P is added.
