An uncommon view of Fort Caroline, the first French colony in the present-day United States. It was established near present-day Jacksonville, Florida in 1564, and it lasted only a year before being wiped out by Spanish forces. This dramatic view shows the French forces building the fort, with their ships anchored in the distance.
A lovely impression on a sound sheet with folds as issued. A little minor printer's smudge in the top margin.
