Description: 
This very large beautifully engraved original antique map of Western Africa was engraved by Jean-Baptiste Bourguinon D'Anville in 1775 - the date is engraved in the title - and was published in the large elephant folio atlas Atlas Generale.

These maps are hard to find in such good condition and make fantastic historical reference tools due to the size and high level of detail as with all D'Anvilles work. (Ref: Tooley, M&B)
