Description: This is a 1771 Rigobert Bonne map of Nubia and Abyssinia. The map depicts from Aswan, Egypt to modern-day Ethiopia and from modern-day Sudan to Saudi Arabia. The modern-day countries of Eretria, Djibouti and Somalia are illustrated and border the Red Sea, which is labeled. This is a fairly advanced map revealing the cartographic sophistication of the Abyssinian Empire. The Blue Nile is illustrated flowing correctly into Lake Dambea (Lake Tana) from the south. Numerous important cataracts on the Blue Nile are labeled. The White Nile, whose course is more mysterious, acts as a kind of western border for this map, with only vague notations regarding the African empires lying on its western shores. Numerous Nubian and Abyssinian cities and monasteries are labeled, along with Mecca across the Red Sea. A decorative title cartouche is situated in the upper right corner. Drawn by Rigobert Bonne in 1771 for issue in Jean Lattre's Atlas Moderne . Size: Printed area measures 11.5 inches high by 16.25 inches wide. Condition: Very good. Original platemark visible.

DHL or FedEx will contact the buyer by telephone to arrange payment. 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, but from time to time duty of 5% is assessed incorrectly by the UK customs agents. Insurance: All shipments are insured privately against loss and damage.
