The map title translates as follows:
Tripoli, a large city in Africa on the Barbary Coast. It is at present under the protection of the Grand Turk, and serves as a haunt for pirates. It is governed by a type of republic.
The view was likely issued for a number of years in the 18th Century, from circa 1710 until the final part of the 18th Century.
