A fine dark impression of this map of the Florida peninsula and West Florida. The latter would later form parts of the states of Alabama and Mississippi. Florida is depicted at a time of great interest to the English as possession of it came after the Treaty of Paris only two years earlier when it was handed over by the Spanish. England was to hold it for just 20 years. It is depicted as an archipelago. Even in south Florida a number of toponyms are recognisable – ‘Cayo Biscayne’ and ‘Boca de Ratones’. Jolly, D.C. (Brit Per) LOND-243; Seller & Van Ee #1620.
