About the Original Map
The map displayed on the home page is based on a 1781 map of West Africa by M. Bonne. At the time, Bonne was the chief hydrographer to the King of France. The map is entitled (in French) A Map of Guinee, displaying the Cape Verde Islands, Senegal and the Guinee Coast, the Kingdoms of Loango, Congo, Angola and Benguela and the surrounding countries, so far as they are known.
