Anonymous or Unknown
|Measurement Notes:||Prime meridian Greenwich.|
|Notes:||Compare # 1459 with slight differences in the labeling of North Atlantic. This map #780 appears to be a later edition of an unknown cartographer. The early pattern of the Niger river predates Mungo Park's description of 1799, and the mythical Lake Maberia was seen from 1722 to 1790. Therefore estimate the original date as c.1760-1790;|
