A New & Accurate Map Of Negroland ... : E. Bowen

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Bowen's map of West Africa extends along the coast from Sao Tome to the Canary Islands. Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana and Benin are here called "Tooth Coast", "Gold Coast" and "Slave Coast" respectively. Inland detail is very much fictional with lakes, rivers, deserts and kingdoms all invented. Bowen's map is a good example of the European view of this area - "Gabou from whence they bring Jasper and Slaves" and "Tomabut from whence are brought Gold, Ivory and good tin" are just two descriptions to be found on the map. The title appears in a decorative cartouche at lower left including an elephant and non-European figures conducting their trade.
