Map of Africa. Africa, published in 1817 by US cartographer Fielding Lucas, Jr (1781-1854). The coast of Africa and major rivers were mapped, but large areas of the interior remained unknown until the second half of the 19th century. Africa is here divided into fifteen regions. The names include Barbary, Tripoli, Egypt, the Sahara, Nigritia (Sudan), Nubia, Abyssinia, Darfur, Galla, Congo, Nimeamay (Niamey), the Houswaana, Caffreria, Monomotapa and Madagascar. An inset at lower left shows the Azores, Cape Verde, and Canary Islands. Published in 'A New and Elegant General Atlas' (Baltimore, 1817).
