Notes: from Spruner's Historische Atlas, .. This map of Africa depicts the various European possessions from the fifteenth century to the nineteenth century. A small inset map shows the colonies along the "Gold Coast" of Africa in present-day Ghana, Togo, and Benin. A larger inset map details the northwestern coasts of Morocco and Algeria based on the accounts of Joannes Leo Africanus, who authored Descrittione dell'Africa, a mid-sixteenth century book on the geography of North Africa
