This item has been sold. Please check our homepage for currently available maps.
Kitchin's sweeping and well-detailed "Map of the Gulf of Mexico, the Islands and Countries Adjacent," from the Dutch edition of Robertson's History of America. Derived from an earlier, somewhat retrograde French map of the region by Robert BĂ©rnard, Kitchin's map shows Florida as overly narrow, with a fragmented southern tip. Includes an ornate floral and scrollwork cartouche and a handsome compass rose to the right of the Bahamas..
