Handsome early map covering from South Carolina through Louisiana. The map depicts Florida during the period when it was controlled by the Spanish. However, there are no political divisions indicating the map maker's bias toward the United States claims to the territory. Numerous Indian villages are located and roads are shown connecting early settlements. The Bahamas are also well delineated.
