Rare early English map of the West Indies and the southern part of Florida and the Bahamas.
Lots of early palce names. One of the earliest English maps of the region.
The map first appeared in Robert Morden's Atlas Terrestris in 1693.
Robert Morden (d. 1703) was a British map and globe maker. Little is known about his early life, although he was most likely apprenticed to Joseph Moxon. By 1671, Morden was working from the sign of the Atlas on Cornhill, the same address out of which Moxon had previously worked. Most famous for his English county maps, his geography texts, and his wall maps, Modern entered into many partnerships during his career, usually to finance larger publishing projects.
