Nice maps of the region of present day Gabon, Congo and Senegal, Mauritania. First (12.2 x 9.2") is embellished with a rococo-style title cartouche with distance scale below. Second (10. 2 x 8") and third (6.2 x 8.1") are less decorative, but show good detail of the coastline and mouth of the Congo River. The last (8.8 x 5.6") follows the Senegal River and features a beautiful rococo-style title cartouche with large shell at top.
The first three are folding as issued. Each is very good or fine.
