A later edition of Van Keulen's magnificent and very rare chart of southern Florida, Cuba and the Bahamas. The level of detail is extraordinary throughout, with an especially excellent rendering of the Florida Keys. A prominent note at the top of the chart refers to the discovery of the Bahamas by Columbus; next to this are inset charts of Hondo and Matanzas Bays in Cuba and a plan of Havana. This superb chart has rightly been called a landmark in the mapping of Florida, Cuba and the Bahamas.
