A fine, interesting chart of the Caribbean, also showing part of Florida, the Yucatan, and Central America. Even small islands are well-represented and navigational hazards marked. Major sea routes are noted as well as the direction of the prevailing winds. Decorative title cartouche and two compass roses decorate the chart.
Faint toning along fold and in Atlantic Ocean, else very good. Tiny split bottom fold not affecting map.
