This interesting folio sheet combines seven maps inset into panels of French text that illustrate the British holdings in North America and the West Indies. The largest map (9 x 5.7") titled, "Carte de la Jamaique Nouvelle..." shows the island in great detail and includes a large inset of the Gulf of Mexico and West Indies. The other maps illustrate Barbados, Bermuda and the British colonies in North America (in four regional maps). Together these maps cover all of the regions colonized by the English at the early part of the 18th century.

References: McCorkle #719.3.

Overall very good with some worming along the centerfold that has been expertly repaired with leaf-casting and skilled facsimile in the inset map at top. The repairs in the text below do not include facsimile of the text.
