Very scarce sea chart of the western coast of Africa from this sea-atlas compiled by Nathaniel Cutler, with the assistance of Edmund Halley. The map provides an excellent view of the Ivory Coast, Gold Coast and Slave Coast with compass roses and loxodromic lines. This fine atlas was only printed once and its maps are rarely seen on the market.
