Carolinae Floridae, Nec Non Insularum Bahamensium ... : M. Catesby / J. M. Seligmann

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A fine example of one of the most decorative and sought-after maps of the North American South East and adjacent West Indian islands. Copied from the almost unobtainable English version of 1743, Mark Catesby’s map was based on the most up-to-date information and extends from southern Virginia, through the Carolinas, Georgia, Florida to Cuba, Jamaica, St Domingo and Puerto Rico. Westwards the map reaches the Mississippi and Yucatan allowing for an elegant and large titlepiece at top right. Coastal detail is clear for the established States whereas the Florida peninsula lacks almost all information beyond a handful of Indian settlements. British colonies are shown in red, French in green and Spanish in yellow. The Bahamas are shown in great detail and Bermuda is almost lost next to the title cartouche in which Iohann Michael Seligmann’s name is given.
