This double-page map of Mexico and the West Indies extends to include the southern states, all of the Caribbean and Bahama Islands, and a portion of northeastern South America. There is excellent detail throughout Mexico and Central America. The Baja Peninsula is here called Lower California. Four insets show Cuba, Jamaica, Bermuda Islands and a map of the Panama Railroad.
There is some faint color offsetting in the image and a number of tiny tears confined to the blank margins that have been closed on verso with archival tape.
