A very interesting folio sheet containing seven maps inset into panels of French text. The largest map, Carte de la Jamaique Nouvelle... (9 x 5.7"), shows the island in great detail and includes a large inset of the Gulf of Mexico and West Indies. The other maps illustrate Barbados, Bermuda, and the British colonies in North America (in four regional maps, including Chatelain's only map to exclusively focus on New England). Together these maps cover all of the regions colonized by the English at the early part of the 18th century.
