The West India Islands. : J. Cary

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An excellent detailed regional map of the Caribbean, showing islands, towns, rivers, mountains, lakes, castles and other items of interest. John Cary (1755-1835) was a renowned and active map engraver and publisher, working between 1787 and 1834 in London. Cary's maps are of a very high technical standard, being finely engraved, but are also designed to be functional. The maps strive for accuracy rather than decoration, which emphasises the detail, the accomplished engraving and the clarity of presentation. An interesting note against the Bahaman island of Guanihani states "... the first land of all America discovered by Columbus in 1492 ..."
