Notes

Map of the coastal settlement of the West African country of Guinea between Serre-Leone [ i.e. Sierra Leone, a British colony from about this period] and the Equator. Cities and towns along the coastline including the Côte d'Or are shown without inland detail. The French as well as the British and Portuguese traders were interested in this area as it was a popular source for slaves during the 16th and 17th centuries. By the 18th century Guinea had split into many small kingdoms and at this time Fulani Muslims migrated to Fouta Djallon in Central Guinea and established an Islamic state from 1735 to 1898.

"1775".
