Very uncommon coastal chart covering the region from the Mississippi Delta to Cape San Bias. Along the coastline there are soundings and anchorages noted and in the interior swamps, settlements and Indian villages are shown. Rhumb lines and fleur-de-lis, the stamp of the Depot General de Marine, and a large title block make this a handsome chart.
