I have a copy of this book dated 1721 - it is the second edition. I bought it 20 years ago whilst I was working in West Africa.
I have visited many of the places mentioned - and also have a
composite print by the same engraver of the many castles in the book (before the days of photocopiers). Of course Curamo island never existed - but my book is one of the two remaining that has the fold out map.
Time moves very slowly and the views expressed by the author - Mr Bosman - are still held by many expatriates (as well as UK citizens) today.
