Description:

A copper engraved, hand colored map that covers from the Gulf of Mexico to the lesser Antilles including all of the West Indies, Florida and Central America, with parts of Louisiana, Mexico and northern South America. In essence a nautical chart, this map has little inland detail and is crisscrossed with both rhumb lines and lines of latitude and longitude. Coastal cities, rivers and ports are named throughout. Also shows numerous shoals, reefs, and other offshore dangers. Southern Florida is rendered as an archipelago in a primitive attempt at describing the Everglades
