Map of the Countries Inhabited by the Wolofs.
Map of the Countries Inhabited by the Wolofs. To face Page.1. Vol.II.
Pub.d at R. Ackermann's 1822.
Engraving. 202 x 159mm. 8 x 6¼". Soiling and crease to upper left corner; some tiny holes.
A map indicating the Wolof concentration in Senegal, with overlaps into Gambia and Mauritania. The Wolof community belonged to the medieval West African state of the Wolof Empire that ruled between 1350 and 1890. Their demise was at the hands of the French colonial forces in the 1870s, whih also maked the beginning of the formation of Senegal as a unified state. By the end of the 15th century, the Wolof states of Jolof, Kayor, Baol and Walo had become united in a federation with Jolof as the metropolitan power. The position of king was held by the Burba Wolof and the rulers of the other component states owed loyalty to him while being allowed local sovereignty in internal state matters. Saloum and Sine were later brought within the union. Before they became involved in trading with the Portuguese merchants on the coast, the Wolof people enjoyed the benefits of long established trading and cultural ties with the Western Sudanese empires and had also benefited from trading with Futa Toro and the Berbers from North Africa. Through these early trading links and organisation the Wolof states grew wealthy and had formidable strength.
