Rare and desirable antique map of Bermuda by John Speed, 1626. Features a decorative cartouche and decorative distance keys. Includes remarkable detail for the island, with a complete list of land owners divided by Tribe. The map is based upon John Norwood's survey of 1618. Also interesting to note: in the lower left is Hispaniola, along the top are Florida, Virginia with Roanoak, Cape Cod, and New England, while at the center under the cartouche is a tiny Bermuda. This was done as an ingenious way to place Bermuda in its geographic context. Good to very good overall antique condition with a fold as issued. Overall toning, some small stains, darkening along the center fold, and tight margins where the map was trimmed. Approx. 15.5 x 20.75 inches to the outer printed edges. **NOTE- because this map requires extra insurance for shipping, an additional charge will appear on your card after your original purchase. If you would like to know what that charge will be, please contact us.**
