Pretty pair of maps illustrating the southeast and northwest coastlines of Africa. The maps were prepared for the Minister of the Navy, Count of Maurepas. Each map is nicely detailed with locations of settlements, anchorages, and forts. First measures 9 x 9.5" and second is 7.8 x 9.8".
Overall very good with a bit of light soil and a tiny rust spot.
