This attractive small map of Antigua was reduced from Robert Baker's large survey of the island. The divisions and parishes are noted and there is a considerable amount of interior detail provided including the locations of churches. The coastal soundings and hazards are meticulously identified, with excellent notes of submerged rocks and other hidden dangers. A plan of English Harbour is included in an inset map.
