Goree Island, 1728
Based on Jean Baptiste Labat, Nouvelle Relation de l'Afrique Occidentale (Paris, 1728; vol. 4, p. 127), in Thomas Astley (ed.), A New General Collection of Voyages and Travels (London, 1745-47), vol. 2, plate x, facing p. 18.
Numbers identify the location of many places and buildings. For a view of Goree island from the sea in 1681, see P.E.H. Hair, Adam Jones, and Robin Law, Barbot on Guinea [1678-1712] (London, 1992), vol. 1, after p. 41 and associated text. Similar views of Gorèe and its slave holding areas are also in Awnsham and John Churchill, A Collection of Voyages (London, 1732; vol. 5, plate 3, p. 21) in the translation of Barbot's late 17th century account.
