Handsome sea chart on two joined sheets covering the region from the Virgin Islands to Grenada in great detail. Two large floral cartouches; one enclosing the title and the other with an inset "Carte Particuliere les Isles des Vierges". Rhumb lines and two vignettes of coastlines.
On very thick paper. Very light damp stain and old repairs of some long tears with some roughness along joint. Overall a very attractive and uncommon map.
