A fine example of John Ogilby's map of the West Indies, based on Hessel Gerritaz’ chart of 1631 and Blaeu's map of 1635, and Janssons map of 1636.  

Ogilby's map extends from the shoreline from Chesapeake Bay to the northern coast of South America. Florida exhibits an intriguing shape, extending westward to the Mississippi River. The Mississippi's mouth is depicted as a sizable bay, leading into three distinct rivers. Honduras dominates much of Central America, while Nicaragua is situated along the southwest coast. Coastal cities and ports are noted with Spanish, Portuguese, and English nomenclature. 

The lovely title cartouche features a vignette depicting indigenous peoples and Europeans. The seas are embellished with rhumb lines, ships and compass roses. A decorative scale of distance can be found in the lower right presenting German and Spanish miles.

Condition: This map is in A condition with superb color and wide margins on all sides.
