Rare separately issued map of Cuba, along with a large plan of Havana, a large view of Havana, an inset map of Puerto Rico and a mountain profile, listing and illustrating the major mountains.

Fascinating map, extending north to include the Florida Keys and south to Grand Cayman Island, illustrating the details of the Island of Cuba in great detail, including railroad lines (operating and under construction) and two different types of roads (Camino Real and Camino Herradura). A detailed note in Spanish at the top includes a geographical and historical overview of the island. The map is quite rare, with the only reference we could locate to the map being reference 629c in Cueto's Cuban Cartography 1500 - 1898.

The map was engraved by Langevin, who was active with Vuillemin in the 1850s and after. Cueto's description suggests that that this edition has different insets than the one which he describes in his book and is likely a later edition.

Condition Description
