This attractive map of Western Africa provides a detailed view of the coastal regions from Senegal to Angola. Political divisions, towns and cities, rivers, mountains, deserts, and more are identified. The interior of the continent is still largely unexplored. Cape Verde appears off the coast. Adorned by a decorative title cartouche and three distance scales.

Nice impressions on watermarked paper with minor scattered foxing. The eastern sheet has two tiny holes only visible when held to light. The first image is a composite image - the map is in two separate sheets.
