This double-page map of Mexico and the West Indies extends to include the southern states, all of the Caribbean and Bahama Islands, and a portion of northeastern South America. There is excellent detail throughout Mexico and Central America. The Baja Peninsula is here called Lower California. Four insets show Cuba, Jamaica, Bermuda Islands and a map of the Panama Railroad.
A clean and bright example with two short edge tears that have been closed on verso with archival tape - one is confined to the top blank margin and the other just enters the map border at left.
