Africa According To Mr D’Anville, With Several Additions, & Improvements ... : J.B.B D’Anville / R. Sayer

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Large map of Africa on four sheets joined as one, prepared and printed in London but credited to J.B.B D’Anville. Around the profile of Africa are blocks of fascinating descriptive text. Read in conjunction with the fact that the honest mapmaker had left many blank areas inland, these form a useful summary of the European understanding of Africa at the time. On an inset “Chart Of The Gold Coast” are shown the trading forts of the English, Dutch and the Prussians, along with the local kingdoms. Although dated 1772, it first appeared in 1773.
