From John Ogilby's 'Africa ' which was based on the Dutch publication of two years earlier by Jacob van Meurs of Olfert Dapper's Naukeurige Beschrijvinghe Der Afrikaensche .... Using the same copperplate maps and views, this translation was the best English account of the continent to that time and was intended to be part of a series of atlases of all parts of the world, which, in fact, was never completed. The plates were finely engraved and represent evocative European perceptions of the regions as known during the seventeenth century. The following date from 1668-1670.
Ogilby, a London geographer, historian, and publisher, was born in Edinburgh in 1600. In addition to being a bookseller, printer, and translator, he was also a dancing teacher and theatre owner; he was appointed Royal Cartographer in 1671. "Africa" was the first colume of Ogilby's planned "English Atlas" series, and is the most comprehensive English work on that continent published in the 17th century. It is of particular interest owing to its numerous plates of natural history subjects and for the accounts of the natives of southern Africa
