Attractive example of Jefferys map of Jamaica published by Laurie & Whittle .
Showing parishes, towns, and villages, churches, forts, roads, rivers and ponds, harbors, anchorages, soundings, etc.
Includes an annotation at upper left: "The Negro-towns are Distinguished by a Stroke under the Name." Includes 2 large inset plans of the Harbours of Bluefields and Kingston and Port Royal. These inset maps are also extremely detailed including the names of some plantations.
Very good condition, two small closed tears on top slightly affecting the image but almost not visible on the front side.
