Engraved map. 38x49 cm (15 x19.25 inches) plus text at sides and bottom, on sheet 52x67.5 cm (20.5 by 26.5 inches). Well-engraved Hand-colored map of Cuba. French text borders on three sides, describing the religious, commercial, historical and other aspects of life on Cuba.

The map appeared in Buchon's edition of Carey & Lea's Atlas, which was highly prized not only for its cartographic information but for the marvelous information about each of the states and territories included.

The atlas was issued in 6 editions in English, French & German, between 1822 and 1827. The French edition is a completely revised map, with better engraving quality than the original Philadelphia edition.

A variant title on the map reads "Ile de Cuba. Dressée par Pierron d'aprés la carte de M. de Humboldt..."

Fine condition, with remains of previous mounting tape on verso; expected toning.
