Carte Des Isles Canaries

The Canary Islands, a string of Spanish islands off the coast of southern Morocco, are shown at the bottom of this eighteenth-century map. The top of the map shows the Portuguese archipelago of Madeira. Some topographical features, as well as the locations of towns and ports, are delineated on the islands. This map was created by Rigobert Bonne, the royal cartographer to France, for Guillaume Raynal’s Atlas de Toutes les Parties Connues du Globe Terrestre, Dressé pour l'Histoire Philosophique et Politique des Établissemens et du Commerce des Européens dans les Deux Indes (1780).
