Unidentified coloured chart. Scale not given. Cartouche is a design in simple scroll work & an 8 point compass rose in the right hand lower corner is the only decoration. Longitude of the "Isle de Fer" is noted in the lower left hand corner, & on the right is a "Nota" on longitude & latitude. This map is noted as unidentified in Johannesburg Pub. Lib.: Exhibition of decorative maps of Africa up to 1800, 1952, descriptive catalogue, p.133. It is noted however, that the watermark is such as was used in 18th century France.
