A large and rare map of Africa, not listed in either Tooley or Norwich. It is decorated with a large allegorical cartouche featuring a female Europe and a male Africa, both holding manacles, representing the valuable slaves trade.

The engraved border is filled with 4 armorials, European and Asian as well as African, interspersed with shells.
