Three maps on one sheet from the original Spanish surveys. This is the revised edition from the original 1817 chart surveyed by Capt. Hurd of the Royal Navy, published by the Admiralty in Madrid. Excellent detail, particularly in the water. Each with a compass rose showing magnetic variation. A large and rarely seen map in very nice condition.
Beautiful, early impression on thick paper. Two small spots, else fine.
