Chatelain based this map of northwestern Africa on De L’Isle’s map of the same area. The map is a good strong impression on heavy paper. Southern Spain, Sicily and parts of Greece are depicted at the far north of the map. African Kingdoms of the early eighteenth centrury are portrayed from Morocco in the northwest, to the eastern edge of Tripoly and southward and around the western edge of Africa to the Kingdom of Benin. Countless small kingdoms are noted throughout the area, as are major rivers, lakes and mountain ranges. The Sahara Desert, with the Tropic of Cancer running through its center is depicted and the myriad indigenous peoples of the area are named.

The lower left quadrant contains a description of Guinea, Nigeria, and the Barbary Coast. The map is remarkably accurate and this version was used for decades by cartographers and publishing houses.

Condition: This hand colored map is in A condition. A strong impression very lightly toned on heavy paper.
