Description

Early edition of Mount & Page's map of the Gulf Coast, Florida and part of the Caribbean.

A comparison of this map to the example dated 1722 and illustrated in Flags along the Coast suggest that this map may predate the example illustrated, as there are considerably fewer soundings and other details are more primitive than the 1722 edition illustrated. Interesting archipelagic Florida, and a number of shoals shown which do not appear in the later editions. Includes bays, rivers, islands, soundings and directions for sailing.

An important early map in the history of the cartography of the Texas, Gulf Coast and Florida regions. As these were working charts, typically printed on cheap paper, the maps rarely survive in good condition and offsetting and minor loss is the norm.

An essential map for collectors of these regions. From the seminal fourth book of the English Pilot. Issued at a time when the French and English were actively colonizing North America and the Battle for supremacy in the Gulf Coast following King Phillip's War was active and the Spanish interests in the region were waning.
