Africa, 16th century Spanish map

Africa, from Juan de la Cosa's map of 1500. Juan de la Cosa (1460-1510) was a Spanish navigator and cartographer. In 1493 he joined Columbus on his second expedition to the New World. This map is a section of the world map produced by Cosa in 1500. The depiction of Africa owes much to the Portuguese explorer Vasco de Gama who, in 1497, found a trade route to India around the southernmost tip of Africa. Taken from A Book of Discovery (1912) by M.B. Synge
