Item Information

Title:
Partie occidentale de L'Afrique, contenant les pays et etats voisins de la côte, entre le Cap St. Vincent et le Cap Tagrin : avec L'Isle Madere, Les Isles Canaries, et celles du Cap Verd
Description:
Published by the French Depot de la Marine, this map of northwestern Africa depicts the settled tribal areas located north and south of the Sahara Desert. These brightly colored jurisdictions provide a stark contrast to the desolation of the desert itself, which dominates the center of the map. The coast line shown here runs from the Straits of Gibraltar in the north to Cape Tagrin and the Sierra Leone River in the south. The Cape Verde Islands appear at the lower left.
