Engraved by Desbuilins for Nicolas Bellin - Ingenieur De La Marine, this attractive outline map was drawn to illustrate the voyages of Captain Robert Lade, a fictional sailor of fortune but whose 'account' supplied information of some veracity on the British Colonies including the newly formed colony of Georgia. Margins close and rebacked with negligible old tear repaired.
