A scarce Spanish edition of a chart by Royal Navy Captain William Owen surveyed between 1822 and 1826. It shows the African mainland from Maputo north to the equator, marking Mombasa in Kenya. Madagascar features prominently, but Zanzibar and the Comoros islands are also marked.
Owen carried out extensive hydrographic surveys in South Africa and Canada and ended his career as later vice-admiral.
