BOSMAN, Willem. A new and accurate description of the coast of Guinea, divided into the Gold, the Slave, and the Ivory Coasts. Containing a geographical, political and natural history of the kingdoms and countries: With a particular account of the rise, progress, and present condition of all the European settlements upon that coast; and the just measures for improving the several branches of the Guinea trade. 2nd edition.

The first is written by David van Nyendael containing a description of Rio Formosa, or Benin. The second is written by Jan Snoek giving a description of the Tooth and Grain Coast. The fine plates depict the trade-settlements on the West African coast. 'Usually recognised as the standard work concerning the Gold Coast of this period' (Cardinall 256). - Fine. Cf. Tiele 174; Cf.
