This well engraved chart gives good detail of the northern Caribbean with excellent detail of the Bahamas. The southeastern coastline of Florida is at the map's left edge and a portion of Cuba is below the Bahamas. The seas are fully engraved in a wave-pattern and are further decorated with a cluster of battling sailing ships shown above Grand Bahama Island with a ribbon-style title cartouche floating above in the sky.
