This superb sea chart covers the Yucatan Peninsula, the eastern coast of Honduras, and the western part of Cuba. The map is filled with impressive detail of the shoals and anchorages and is embellished with rhumb lines, compass roses, and a sailing ship. North is oriented to the bottom of the sheet. Putti flank the title cartouche.
A sharp impression on paper with a "CSH" watermark, light toning, and scattered foxing. There are some grayish shadows along the centerfold that are caused by our scanner and do not appear on the map itself.
