"[Lot of 3 - Cuba]", Lemercier
Period: 1870 (circa)
Color: Hand Color
This lot of three maps by Joseph Lemercier features different views of the island of Cuba with place names in Italian including:
A. [Untitled] (7.3 x 10.3"). Shows the island in an almost pictorial manner, identifying farmland, mountains, forests and towns. East is oriented at top.
B. [Untitled] (9.4 x 13.5"). Includes three maps on one sheet, all of which show the entire island and emphasize the rugged terrain along the coastline and inland. Settlements are identified along the coast.
C. [Untitled] (14.4 x 8.3"). Two maps on one sheet. The top portion of the sheet shows the coastline around Havana and Havana Harbor along the northern coast of the island. A few soundings and an anchorage in the harbor are noted. The bottom portion of the sheet shows the entire island with major settlements noted.
Attractive color with some small spots in the image. The second map has an extended right margin and is backed with tissue.
