This edition has been updated to show several new towns and an extensive road system. This is one sheet of the 16-sheet map of the West Indies that formed the heart of the important Revolutionary-period atlas. Sheet number BE.9 printed at upper right.
There is some very faint offsetting, an extraneous crease along the centerfold and a repair on a short fold separation at bottom.
