1693 Mortier Map or Sea Chart of the West Coast of Africa (Senegal, Guinea, Gambia)
Carte Particuliere des Costes de l'Afrique qui comprend le Royaume de Cacheo le Province de Gelofo etc.
This beautiful rare map of the coast of Africa covers from the Senegal River to Palmares (close to modern day Conakry in Guinea). Oriented with north to the left, it includes the whole or parts of the coasts of the modern day nations of Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea-Bissau and Guinea. The sea chart offers incredible detail along the coast noting towns, rivers, islands and coastal features including banks and depth soundings. An inset of the Island of Goree (located near Cape Verde) is included with beautifully detailed interior notes Fort Nassau and Fort Orange. At the time, the Island was used as a base for the purchase of slaves from the chiefdoms on the mainland by the Atlantic slave traders.
Pierre Mortier (1661-1711) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, and printseller who worked in Amsterdam. He used advanced Dutch printing methods to produce high quality editions of contemporary French maps by cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. His greatest feat was the nautical atlas "Le Neptune Francois" or "Suite de Neptune Francois", considered to contain the most beautiful examples of cartographic art. Most of the charts from the atlas were based on earlier manuscripts by the Portuguese, who were the first explorers of the African coast. This chart is a beautiful example of one of those charts.
