Description

A magnificent and scarce chart of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, one of the few 19th Century separately published charts to focus on these islands.

Six insets including the harbors of San Juan, St. Thomas, Road Harbour, Guanica, Mayaguez andd Christiansted. Also five profile approach views. Includes an interesting "Precautionary Notice respecting the positions of the Virgin Islands," noting the uncertainty of the positions of the Islands and warning that "(a) great number of wrecks have occurred on Anegada Reefs..."

The map was originally published by Charles Wilson, as successor to Norie & Wilson in 1846. We have also noted an edition of 1857 in the digital collection of the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.
