Fascinating map of the Caribbean, the southern United States, Central America and northern coast of South America. Florida consists only of the peninsula, with the southern portion shown as a jumble of large islands, named Bay del Spiritu Santo. Georgia is massive, extending to the Mississippi and the Gulf Coast. Texas is named as the New Kingdom of Leon. The map is filled with interesting information, with many forts and towns named, and some shipping routes are also shown.
Some light foxing, else fine.
