The coverage area includes the southern tip of Florida, the Bahamas, and Cuba, with longitude measured from Paris and Isle de Fer. Details include wagon roads between various cities on the island of Cuba, natural features, four distance scales, and a printed notation identifying Cat Island as the landing site of Columbus in 1492. The map was published in Chanlaire & Mentelle's Atlas Universel de Geographie, Paris, 1798. The image area measures 32 x 43 cm [13" x 17"] on a larger sheet, with generous margins on all sides.

The map is in very fine condition, bright and clean, with one small closed tear in the lower margin, outside of the image area, and no marks, stains, or foxing. It is printed on a heavy laid paper and is blank on the back, with no printing on the reverse side. Please see the scans and feel free to ask any questions.
