This scarce map illustrates the Dutch, French and Portuguese possessions in Guyana. An inset shows the French forts at the mouth of the Sinamary River. The map locates several Dutch and French forts along the coast. The title cartouche contains the French Republican calendar, used by the French government for about twelve years from late 1793 to 1805. Dissected and backed with contemporary brown linen with title in brown manuscript ink on a paper label.
Some minor creasing from mounting, else very good.
