Map of West African Coast around the equator
Keulen, Gerard Hulst van
Title Leupe: Kaart van den Noorder Atlantische Oceaan.
This is sheet number 4 from a series on the North Atlantic Ocean (VEL98A-C). The west coast of Africa around the equator is drawn here. Gerard Hulst van Keulen likely printed the map in preparation of his atlas ‘De nieuwe groote lichtende zee-fakkel’ from 1790. Note three routes from Europe to the south can be found on sea. Ports and seabanks are indicated and the map was composed based on rhumb lines.
