Highly decorative sea chart of the coast of West Africa, from Louis Renard’s sea atlas, Atlas de la Navigation et du Commerce. The map was first published by Frederick De Wit around 1675, then by Renard in 1715, again by J. Ottens in 1739 and 1745 and finally by the widow of van Keulen in 1802. Renard amended the plates from De Wit’s sea atlas, including replacing De Wit’s name with his own and adding a new number in the upper right corner. The map is decorated with a large cartouche, compass roses and sailing ships.
