    Description

    E. & G.W. Blunt. New Chart of the West Indies and Gulf of Mexico. From the Spanish, English, French, & Danish Surveys. New York: E. & G.W. Blunt, 1840. 83.5" x 25.75", printed on two oversized sheets. A blue backed sea chart of the Gulf of Mexico through the coast of Florida and the West Indies. With seven inset maps including Tampico, Puerto Rico, Rum Key, St. Thomas, Harbour of Havanna, and Harbour of Matanzan. Originally drawn when Texas was an independent Republic, these charts were regularly updated and reissued; but because they were intended for use at sea, they seldom survived intact. Offered here is an early edition, in exceptional condition.

    Condition: Backed with heavy blue paper, joining two oversized sheets. Stored rolled, with light creasing throughout. Coloration varies between the two sheets; the right side of the map has darker toning.
