Large and rarely seen Spanish chart covers eastern Cuba, northwest Hispaniola and the lower Bahamas including the Turks & Caicos Island. There is good detail of navigational hazards, soundings and many place names along the coastlines. Filled with rhumb lines, this chart also features a fleur-de-lys, the seal of the Deposito Hidrografico and some very nice lettering in title.
A very nice example with faint foxing and light marginal soil.
