The subscribers to Mark Catesby’s celebrated Natural History received this map bound into their volumes to illustrate the area with which Catesby dealt in his famous work illustrating plants, animals, birds, fish and insects of America. 

 

This scarce map, embellished with a seaweed and seashell covered cartouche, is considered by many collectors to be one of the most highly prized maps of the colonial south.
