Sea chart of the West African coast, from Sierra Leone to southern Morocco, and including the Cape Verde Islands and part of the Canaries, all at a scale of about 1:3,000,000.
Bellin (1703-1772) began working for the newly established Dépôt des Cartes et Plans de la Marine at age eighteen and remained there for his entire life, becoming ingenieur-hydrograph in 1741. He never travelled himself, but acquired a thorough knowledge of the cartographic information gathered by his colleagues and compiled it to produce the most important French maps since the Imprimerie Royale's 1693 Neptune François.
The present map is an impressive technical achievement, printed on the largest size of paper then available (called "Grand-Aigle" in a document of 1741, Briquet, p. 6) from a copperplate nearly a metre long.
With title in a decorative cartouche above left, scales of latitude and longitude in the borders (with additional scales based on prime meridians), the Tropic of Cancer and 2 prime meridians marked, and an indication of the departure from magnetic north.
