This is a very nice map of Africa. Plenty of detail is offered mostly along the coast; however, majority of the interior is unexplored by Westerners. A large Lake Chad (Tchad) is shown. Western Africa coatline is identified, from west to east, as Grain Coast, Ivory Coast, Gold Coast and Slave Coast. From A New General Atlas of the World. Teesdale maps are increasingly scarce.
