Fine original antique map of the mouth of the Gambia River, showing depth soundings and including three coastal views.

The map shows, in slightly imprecise terms, the mouth of the river as it passes between the narrow point of Barra Banjul. From there, it passed the split with the Bitang Bolon, nearly reaching Kemoto.

This map first appeared in Mount and Page's The English Pilot, Fifth Book, which covered African navigation. The plate number in the upper left may suggest that it was from a later issue.
