Very attractive chart of the island with good detail throughout. It names many villages and coastal areas. The island is sectioned into about 20 Administrative Divisions. The divisions of St. Dorothy, St. John, St. Thomas, Port Royal, and St. Davids have been absorbed by the 14 divisions we see today. Decorative borders, the Seal of the Colony, and five nicely rendered vignettes are featured; Port Royal Harbour, Kingston, Port Antonio, Sugar Mill, and a flying fish.
