Carte des Canaux de la Providence et de Bahama Depuis le Coste en deux Feuilles De Edmund Blunt de 1847

DESCRIPTION: 

SOLD

Fine antique nautical chart from 1851 of Southern Florida and the Keys to Cuba including the Bahamas to Eleuthera. This scare old chart after a work by Edmund Blunt in 1847 was produced by the French Depot-General de la Marine and includes the circular imprint of that organization. Points of interest include "Havane" (Havana, Cuba) and Fort Dallas (est. 1836), at the mouth of the Miami River. Notably absent is any mention of the towns of Miami, Palm Beach or any other population center in that area. Insets at upper right and upper left contain profiles of topographic features.



Old maps of Florida by the Depot de la Marine are uncommon and should be prized both by the collector and by those interested in their use as nautical décor.
