Description: This is a 1797 Giovanni Maria Cassini map of West Africa. As is the case with many 18th and 19th century maps of Africa, coastal features are illustrated in detail and numerous coastal settlements are labeled. Coastal rivers are also noted. The interior of Africa, however, is a vast empty space, reflecting the lack of knowledge about the geography of the continent's interior. Rivers are charted and some settlements are labeled, including what is most likely Timbuktu (Tombuto).
Tribal names are referenced, but no borders for their territories are provided. This map was created by Giovanni Maria Cassini and published in 1797. Size: Printed area measures 14.5 inches high by 19.5 inches wide. Light wear along original centerfold.
