A superb sea chart of the Yucatan Peninsula, the coast of Honduras, and the western part of Cuba. The map is filled with impressive detail of the soundings, currents, shoals and anchorages and embellished with rhumb lines, compass roses and a sailing ship. Putti flank the title cartouche.
Very sharp impression and color with minor stains in blank margins.
