Thomas Jeffery's detailed map of Florida from his "American Atlas" is presented here on two sheets joined. Each sheet has its own title; "The Coast Of West Florida And Louisiana" and "The Peninsula And Gulf Of Florida Or Channel Of Bahama With The Bahama Islands". The scale of the map allows for considerable detail to be shown - numerous sounding depths are given and textual annotations point out "Road Rocks" and "Good Anchoring & Watering for Ships", amongst others. The course of "The Flota's Track from la Vera Cruz to Havanna to avoid the Trade Winds" is also given. Thomas Jefferys (1719-1771) was one of the leading English publishers of the eighteenth century. His career was distinguished and placed him at the forefront of cartographical endeavours at this time. His "American Atlas" in which this map appeared was published, posthumously, by Robert Sayer in 1775 although many individual sheets had been issued by Jefferys in the 1750s. In his introduction to the facsimile edition of "The American Atlas" Walter Ristow said, "It's timely publication, on the eve of the American Revolution, assured a good audience, and as a major cartographic reference work it was, very likely, consulted by American, English and French civilian administrators and military officers ...". One of the first relatively accurate depictions of 'the sunshine state'.
