New York. 1864. Rolled blueback chart. Staining, soiling and a small burn hole, consistent with shipboard use. Also a small area of loss at middle of lower edge. Good. About 78 1/2 x 40 1/2" (sheet size). Item #3587
This large chart -- with north to the right -- portrays the Florida Keys, the Bahamas, Cuba and the Turks & Caicos. The chart has a title at the lower right and a printed Blunt label on the back. Nevertheless, it appears to have been assembled from several individual charts, as Sheets VI, VII and VIII are denoted within the chart itself. A large inset chart of Havana is at the upper left. The chart has a copyright date of 1850, and may well have been updated a number of times during its lifetime.
