Western sheet only (does not include the Antilles) of a very scarce three sheet map. This sheet includes the title and shows the Pacific coast from Mazatlan north to Sonora, including Baja California and Cape S. Lucas, and the Gulf of Mexico from Vera Cruz to the Red River. Beautifully engraved with much detail inland and fully engraved wind direction arrows in the ocean.
Light scattered foxing and a little weakening on verso of centerfold with old repair, else very good.
