Cape Verde Islands: reproduction of West Africa map

Archibald Lyall: Black and White Make Brown (1938)

I intend to republish this book. The republished book will not contain the images - I will publish them here. The map below shows the route Archibald Lyall followed in his two visits to West Africa. What is very nice about this map is, that it shows the locations the different peoples of West Africa live. It is also useful when reading the 'Jesuit Documents'. The map is part of 'Black and White Make Brown', but there is no information on the source of this map and its accuracy. The first half of Lyall's book is dedicated to the Cape Verde Islands; the second half to 'Western Guinea'.
