Carte De Nigritie Et Guinee ... : P. Du Val / P. Mariette

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A rare map extending from Senegal south to Congo showing "Nigritie Ou Pais Des Negres", Guinea, Benin and Biafra. Produced by Pierre Du Val, this appeared in only the first edition of his folio atlas "Cartes Geographiques ..." - a collection of his single sheet, separately sold, maps. The interior is marked with the names of prominent tribes and some cities and shows the long-held theory that the River Niger flowed westwards from a lake in the Sahara to enter the Atlantic in Senegal. The title is held aloft on a tasselled cloth by a native African figure.
