This handsome large-scale map of St. Kitts has numbered surveyed areas and many placenames, including some rather salty ones along the coast. The map locates the anchorages, and a note near Limekiln Bay records that the Childs Play Man of War was lost on these Rocks Sept. 2. 1707. The map is simply composed, decorated only with a large fleur-de-lys. First state, without inset of Nevis.

A superb impression on a sheet with a faint trace of offsetting. The margins have some minor tears that have been repaired on the verso with tissue.
