Description
Gulf of Mexico, Florida, Louisiana, Bahamas, Cuba, Jamaica, Antilles, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica; Lattrè - Carte geo-hydrographique du Golfe du Mexique - 1780 (circa)
Original old colored in outline copper engravings

A beautiful example of Zannoni's 1762 map of the West Indies, Florida and Central America. Covers from the Gulf of Mexico to the Lesser Antilles including all of the West Indies, Florida and Central America, with parts of Louisiana, Mexico and northern South America. In essence a nautical chart, this map has little inland detail and is crisscrossed with both rumb lines and lines of latitude and longitude. Southern Florida is rendered as an archipelago in a primitive attempt to describe the everglades.

Dimensions: 31,5 x 44,5 cm. (on sheet: 37 x 52 cm)

Condition: good. Minor foxing.
Verso: blank.

Mapmaker: Rizzi Zannoni
Publisher: Lattré. Paris.
