This large-scale chart depicts the lower Bahamas, including the Turks & Caicos Islands, and the northern shore of Hispaniola. There is excellent detail of towns and villages, soundings and anchorages, shoals and topography. The seal of the Depot de Marine is at bottom right with Prix trente Sols below the neatline.
On sturdy, watermarked paper with minor soiling and a few tiny tears confined to the blank margins. The grayish shadow along the centerfold is caused by our scanner and doesn't appear on the map itself.
