Beautiful map of the Caribbean covering from the tip of Florida to the western coast of Central America and the northern coast of South America. The map shows excellent detail of the Bahamas, Cuba, Jamaica, Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and the Windward Islands. The map is decorated with a delicately engraved, drape-style cartouche.
Fine original color. There is a tiny hole in the upper border and a few minor printer's creases, else very good.
