The north of this African discovery map shows the beginning of the expedition the explorers took: Starting from the Gulf of Sidra in Tripoli, the path follows almost straight south to Morzuk, side tracking west to Ghart, then further straight south through the Sahara to Lake Chad, turning south-west to Kalawawa after a trip south and back to Makkaray. Mapping ends in Kalawawa. But it shows other routes taken by others straight to the Gulf of Guinea.
Inset map of Lake Chad and surrounding.
Very detailed map of an area where little was know about in the early 19th century.
Very good condition. Very clean map. A few light creases. A couple of thin paper spots.
