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.  Florida is depicted in a form consistent with early Dutch Sea Charts and the southeast coastline of America protrudes too far east. 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 full margins on all sides.
