A striking map based on the famous survey by Richard Norwood of the Bermuda Company in 1618. The map shows the division into the original Tribes and shows the various landowners, with their names in a table below the map. The map is superimposed over a map of the Atlantic with the coastlines of Britain, North America and Hispaniola showing the location of Bermuda. The map is very similar to Blaeu's map but with slightly different decorations. Blank verso.

References: Palmer (MCC) #7.

Condition: B

Backed with Japanese tissue to repair separation of centerfold. Some color offsetting.
