Item:3625252523711726 Valentijn Map of the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa WE SELL ONLY ORIGINAL ANTIQUE MAPS - NOT REPRODUCTIONS Title: Nieuwe Kaart van Caap der Goede Hoop in hare rechte jegenwoordige staaat vertoond door Francois Valentyn. Description: A beautiful and remarkable 1726 map of the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa, by Francois Valentijn. This map actually comprises of two important maps on a single sheet. The primary map details the Cape of Good Hope from the Doornbosch River to the Baay van Algoa (Algoa Bay). The second map, appearing in the upper right quadrant offers a closer detail of the modern day Cape Town region from Robben Island to False Bay and east as far as Draakenstein. Both maps offer exceptional inland detail with landholders noted throughout - an exceptionally valuable resource for anyone studying the early development of the Cape. Being one of the earliest sophisticated maps of the region, Valentijn's chart was used as a model by numerous subsequent cartographers. This map was issued in Amsterdam in Francois Valentijn's 1726 Oud en nieuw Oost-Indien . It was published by Joannes van Braam and Gerard onder de Linden, whose names appear on the imprint. Today this important map is very scarce. Size: Printed area measures 20.5 inches high by 24.5 inches wide. Condition: Very good. Crisp dark impression suggestive of an early strike off the plate. Original platemark visible. Left margin expertly extended where originally joined to volume. Blank on verso. Shipping: Shipping rates are not negotiable.

DHL or FedEx will contact the buyer by telephone to arrange tax payment if it is levied. Duty varies by country and we cannot predict the amount you will be charged. Some countries are duty free, others are not. Typically, a customs duty and/or VAT tax will be assessed on all parcels to continental Europe. Sometimes duty or tax is due in China, but is seems very random. Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea, and Taiwan have never assessed duty on a map we shipped. Maps shipped to the UK should be duty free as educational materials, but from time to time duty of 5% is assessed incorrectly by the UK customs agents.
