This crisply engraved map of the Caribbean and the Gulf Coast shows excellent detail of Florida, the Caribbean, Yucatan Peninsula and Central America. Inland detail is focused primarily on topography and river systems, while the coasts are filled with place names. The map is surrounded by a keyboard-style border. The publisher's blind stamp is adjacent to the distance scales.
A nice impression with contemporary outline color on a bright sheet with light toning and foxing along the edges of the sheet.
