Rare map early edition of Gussefeld's map of South Florida, the Caribbean and coastlines of Central America.
The map would be updated and re-issed for at least the next 20 years, with corrections. A comparison of this edition to the 1816 edition which we previously posted shows that this edition illustrates the flow of the Gulf Stream, but with fewer directional arrows than the later edition. There is also an annotation below Hispaniola on this edition discussing the split control of the island, which is not present in the later editions.
