Nice example of Moll's map of the Caribbean, Florida, the Gulf Coast, Texas, Central America etc. with insets of the harbors at St. Augustine, Vera Cruz, Havana, Porto Bella and Cartagena and a gorgeous view of Mexico City.

The map includes numerous annotations throughout. Curiously shaped Florida, which is unusually wide. Good internal cartography in Florida, Texas and the Gulf Coast, with interesting notes regarding the Spanish Fort at Pensacola, the trade conducted between the Indians and the French and Spanish in Texas, A White Spaniard settlement in Texas on the Sivoras River, Colonel Moore's abandoned settlement in Western Florida and a host of other details. The bay insets are very detailed and include soundings.

This is an early state of the map, predating Thomas and John Bowles mapsellers information which appears below the Great South Sea in later states of the map.

The present example has no repairs or discoloration along the folds and very wide margins.
