A map from Carey and Lea's A Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas. One of the most detailed maps of the Bahama Islands to appear in a Commercial Atlas. Lengthy narrative text below includes details about the islands, climates, towns, soils, government and history of each.


Carey & Lea's Atlas is highly prized not only for its cartographic information but the marvelous information about each of the states and territories which is included. The atlas was issued in 6 editions in English, French & German between 1822 and 1827. Considered the best atlas of nineteenth-century America.
