This superb sea chart covers the Yucatan Peninsula, the eastern coast of Honduras, and the western part of Cuba.

Putti flank the title cartouche.

Condition: B+

Nice impression and color with light soiling and some creasing and cockling of the paper at top. There is one tiny hole that has been archivally infilled. The grayish shadow along the centerfold is caused by our scanner and doesn't appear on the map itself.

Estimate: $550 - $650

Sold for: $500
