Copperplate engraving, 425 x 520 mm. The paper a little soiled. [London : Mount & Page,
Uncommon English chart of the much of the western coast of Africa, extending from near Cape Verde to just beyond the Cape of Good Hope. The plate is orientated with north at the left, which allows the coastline to fit neatly onto the plate.
The plate was prepared at the end of John Seller's career; it was later used in two volumes of The English Pilot, the Fifth Book for Africa and the Third Book, the Oriental Navigation, this example having been issued in the latter.
