"Guadaloupe, Done from Actual Surveys and Observations of the English", Laurie, Richard Holmes
Period: 1830 (dated)
Color: Black & White
24.5 x 18.3 inches
62.2 x 46.5 cm
A sharply engraved map with tremendous coastal detail showing dozens of rivers, towns, forts, churches, anchorages and military batteries. Interior detail is limited to the expertly rendered topography. Rhumb lines and a striking compass rose make this an especially dramatic map.
A near fine example that has a nice impression on a thick sheet with wide margins.
