Abstract

This map, which illustrates Duarte Pereira's Esmeraldo, shows the west coast of Africa, including Morocco, Senegal, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Benin, Nigeria and the Gabon. It shows Pacheco’s bearings and distances; his measurements were generally accurate ‘averaging little more than forty minutes out’. The tip of Spain is visible at the top of the map while the Equator is the bottom line.
