The Spanish Galeon Treasure Route Past Florida, Havana and the Bahamas, with Extensive Sailing Directions

Fine map of Florida, the Bahamas, Cuba and part of Hispaniola, published by Reiner & Josua Ottens in Amsterdam.

Of note are the multiple "Debouquements," showing the courses taken to and from various points on the northwest coast of Hispaniola.

The map was prepared at the time of the War of Jenkin's Ear between Britain and Spain. The map details the route of the Spanish treasure ships arriving in Havana from Spain, and then heading south towards Cartagena. 

Three insets at top depict the harbors of St. Augustine, Havana, and Santo Domingo.

The two maps were issued separately and as part of a large six-part map illustrating the War of Jenkin's Ear in 1740-41.
