Fascinating map published by the Royal Geographical Society, illustrating the conjectural tracks of Columbus' first voyage to America, which made landfall on October 12, 1492.
The map shows the Columbus' route in red and covers the area betwen Andros Island and Puerto Rico, with a birdseye view at the top of the map.
The map includes a large inset of Watling Island, mapped by Mr. E. Barnett. R.N. in 1816, which was then believed to be "the San Salvador of Columbus." A second inset illustrates the Crooked Isles, described as the "Proposed Fragment Isles of Columbus."
A finely executed map, providing fine details in the Bahamas.
