EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the "West Coast of Africa, from Lisbon to Sierra Leone" as depicted in the renowned Atlas de Toutes les Parties Connues du Globe Terrestre by Guillaume Raynal. Published in Geneva in 1780, this coloured engraving is a true testament to the artistic mastery of Charles Marie Rigobert Bonne (1727-95). The map takes us on an enchanting journey along the coastline, revealing a wealth of geographical wonders and historical significance. From the bustling city of Lisbon, Portugal's gateway to exploration and trade during that era, all the way down to Sierra Leone with its rich cultural heritage and natural beauty. As we traverse this West African landscape through our eyes, we encounter various landmarks such as the Sahara Desert stretching across vast expanses, reminding us of both its harshness and allure. The Canary Islands emerge like emerald gems amidst azure waters while Cape Verde stands proudly as an archipelago steeped in history. This extraordinary piece transports us back in time when cartography was not only a scientific pursuit but also an art form. It invites us to reflect upon how these early maps shaped our understanding of distant lands and cultures. Displayed within private collections today, this exquisite print serves as a reminder of humanity's insatiable curiosity for exploration and discovery. Its timeless appeal continues to captivate viewers who appreciate both its aesthetic value and historical importance.
