Jefferys Antique Chart of the Yucatan Peninsula

The Coast of Yucatan from Campeche to Bahia del Ascension; with the West End of Cuba. By Thomas Jefferys Geographer to His Majesty.

DESCRIPTION: Well-worn, decorative antique sea chart covering from the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico to western Cuba, including Merida, Valladolid, Loggerhead Key, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, etc. By English cartographer Thomas Jefferys. A fleet of galleons is shown on a plotted track labeled: "Gallions Track from Cartagena", while two ships head west along a plotted track labeled: "Track from Cape Catoche to Campeche." To round out the cast of characters a third ship, apparently a privateer, exits a shorter track between two rocky areas. That track is noted as the "Passage del Corsario" (A corsair was a privateer, or pirate acting with the explicit backing of a foreign government).

From Sayer's and Bennett's atlas titled: The West-India Atlas: or, a compendious description of the West-Indies: illustrated with forty one correct charts and maps, taken from actual surveys."
