Embellished with a compass rose, large galleon, canoe with three natives, and two sea monsters. Engraved by P. Stark.

Condition Description: Original outline color on watermarked paper with a light damp stain along the centerfold, minor soiling, and an archivally repaired centerfold separation that extends 4" into map at bottom.
