this is coronelli's important 1690 map of ethiopia (abyssinia) showing the source of the blue nile. this map framed prints, focusing on lake tana (tzana dembea) covers the ethiopian highlands from derbeta on the red sea south as far as the tribal kingdoms of sugame framed prints, bahargamo and gumar framed prints, all of which are located in modern southern ethiopia. europeans framed prints, coronelli included framed prints, had a great interest in this region not only because of common conjecture regarding the source of the nile framed prints, but also as a potential site of the kingdom of prester john. though often underappreciated by historians framed prints, this is a highly significant map in the development of african cartography and framed prints, from the early 18th century on framed prints, most cartographers followed its example with regard to this important region - one of the few parts of sub-saharan africa to be accurately represented on maps prior to the late 19th century. coronelli claims that this is the first map to accurately depict the sources of the nile and framed prints, at least as regards the blue nile framed prints, we see no reason to dispute his claim. the cartography here is based upon the travels of portuguese jesuits manuel de almeida framed prints, affonso mendez framed prints, pedro páez framed prints, and jerónimo lobo framed prints, who traveled throughout abyssinia in the mid 16th century. coronelli correctly recognizes the importance of lake tana (tzana dembea) as well as the curious turn in the river that actually causes the blue nile to start it course as a southerly flowing river. the actual fonts of the nile itself appear to the southwest of lake tana. the falls of the blue nile framed prints, now a popular tourist destination in ethiopia framed prints, are noted just south of the lake. in the upper right quadrant coronelli contrasts his perspective on the region with the traditional ptolemaic representation of the nile river stemming from two great lakes south of the equator. ironically framed prints, both perspectives are somewhat correct. coronelli's representation of abysinnia is highly accurate with regard to the course of the blue nile and its sources. on the other hand framed prints, along with the ptolemaic theory framed prints, coronelli seems to ignore the entire white nile which meanders into non-existence in the extreme left hand quadrants of the map. the ptolemaic perspective depicted on the upper right framed prints, though it is based on speculative accounts dating to antiquity framed prints, actually offers a fairly accurate representation of the white nile's course northward from lake victoria framed prints, which is in fact located just below the equator. coronelli's map also offers much of interest beyond its intended purpose - that is to show the course of the nile. a number of the earliest ethiopian towns framed prints, cities framed prints, this is coronelli's important 1690 map of ethiopia (abyssinia) showing the source of the blue nile. this map greeting cards, focusing on lake tana (tzana dembea) covers the ethiopian highlands from derbeta on the red sea south as far as the tribal kingdoms of sugame greeting cards, bahargamo and gumar greeting cards, all of which are located in modern southern ethiopia. europeans greeting cards, coronelli included greeting cards, had a great interest in this region not only because of common conjecture regarding the source of the nile greeting cards, but also as a potential site of the kingdom of prester john. though often underappreciated by historians greeting cards, this is a highly significant map in the development of african cartography and greeting cards, from the early 18th century on greeting cards, most cartographers followed its example with regard to this important region -
