New & accurate MAP of the WEST INDIES and the adjacent Parts of North & South AMERICA
R. W. Seale
A unique wash coloured map shows Spanish territory as green, British as pink, French as yellow, Dutch as blue, and contested areas as dark gray/black. An elaborate yet handsome cartouche frames the work's title. Marine navigational hazards are symbolized, broken lines are used for various uses, simple hachuring is used to display relief, and parallel lines are used to differentiate figure / ground for the coastlines
No scale bar is present on the map, and it uses Ferro for its prime meridian. The scale and coordinates were calculated using the map's graticule.
