An attractive and very detailed map of the West Indies with insets of the Virgin Islands, Martinique & Guadeloupe. Beautifully engraved on fine heavy paper with the embossed atlas seal below the fancy script title. A touch of outline color along the shorelines of the individual islands provides a delicate accent. The outline color is identified to reflect colonial claims, including those of France, England, Spain, Denmark, Holland, and Sweden. Bold keyboard style border and very wide margins.
A very lovely example with wide margin.
