Large-scale plan of the present-day upscale tourist resort island of Bequia. Shows both private and Crown property. Table lists the tracts and notes that the Crown's tracts are "to be appropriated for the use of Poor Settlers." An extremely scarce map from the surveys of John Brynes, engraved by J. Bayly.
Good impression with some offsetting and age toning.
