Description:
Western Africa dominates the right side of the map, brimming with geographical and political features. Towns and ports are named along the length of the coast, as are rivers, mountain ranges and forested areas. Further inland this detail diminishes. At the time European knowledge of Africa’s interior was extremely limited and not known until the first explorations at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The edge of the Sargasso Sea can be seen to the right of the Verdi archipelago. [AFR4634]
