A NEW GENERAL CHART FOR THE WEST INDIES
A NEW GENERAL CHART FOR THE WEST INDIES
"Of E. Wrights Projection vut. Mercators Chart"

Original antique copper engraved map
Originally engraved by Herman Moll
Published by Seller & Price, London, 1703

A chart of the North Atlantic, showing from the British Isles top right, south to Elmina region in Ghana (F. Del Mine), across the Atlantic to Salvador in Brazil and north to Hudsons Bay.

The chart depicts the region covered by the famous trade triangle of the British slavers, who took British-manufactured goods including rum and textiles to Africa, bartered them for slaves to transport to the Americas, where they exchanged them for the sugar, cotton and tobacco that they supplied to the factories of Britain.

The map is based on the work of Edward Wright (c.1561-1615), the English mathematician who corrected Mercators Projection and wrote the first practical guide to its use on sea charts. These advances allowed British traders to be more efficient on their voyages. Part of this guide is reproduced in a text box on the right of this chart.
