This is the uncommon first state. With table to the right. First issued in 1749 and it went through at least seven states with editions appearing as late as 1810. The standard map of Africa in 18th century France.

The map is loosely based on the earlier maps of De L’Isle and Sanson. Vaugondy however abandons the tradition of filling the blanks with speculative mappings of the White Nile, the Niger, and the Mountains of the Moon.
The table to the right offers a breakdown of the religious, people, islands, and cultures of Africa.
This map went through numerous states, both under Vaugondy directly and by his successors, Fortin, and Delamarche.
