Engraving with very large margins. 270 x 355mm (10˝ x 14"). Centre fold as normal.
A view of Jijel (once known as Djidjelli) in Algeria. In 1664 (less than a decade before this print was first published in Dapper's 'Beschrijvinge der Afrikaanse Gewesten', 1668), the French took the city but were expelled the same year. This example comes from the English edition, published by John Ogilby with the grand title of 'Africa: being, An Accurate Description of the Regions of Egypt, Barbary, Lybia, and Billedulgerid, the Land of Negroes, Guinee, Aethiopia, and the Abysinnes, with All the Adjacente Islands', with the Dutch title and 10-point key duplicated into English.
