A fine decorative map based on the cartography of Hessel Gerritsz. The map includes Mexico through Costa Rica with nice detail. Also includes the U.S. Gulf coast, southwest Florida and a bit of Cuba with less detail. Large pictorial cartouche depicting Native Americans loading goods for a European trader.
Good impression and wide margins. Toned with minor foxing and faded color. Small damp stain and two tears with cello tape repairs in blank margins, not affecting map.
