Superb sea chart of the west coast of Africa from one of the most important Dutch sea-atlases.

A handsome chart with two compass roses and rhumb lines providing excellent detail of the coastline.
Superb old color highlighted in gold leaf. Printed on good sturdy paper, lightly toned with short fold separations on fold closed with archival tape.
