Steel engraving with original hand colouring. Overall size 60.7cms x 50.2cms; image size: 516mm x 416mm. Piano key border. The map contains some notable historical details e.g. Cat Island, in the Bahamas where ‘Colon or Columbus first landed 12 Oct, 1492.’ Three battles are marked including a famous battle between Admiral John Benbow and the French buccaneer Jean du Casse in 1702, where Benbow’s captains refused to support his actions allowing du Casse to escape. Benbow later imprisoned the mutinous captains. The spot where Sir John Duckworth defeated the remainder of the French fleet following the Battle of Trafalgar in 1806 is also marked. The third battle marked was between Admiral Rodney and the Count de Grasse in 1782 between Dominica and Guadaloupe. The map is colour coded with reference to the colonial possessions of Britain, France, Spain , Holland, Denmark, Sweden and purple denotes the Independant territories. Centrefold as published. Some very faint foxing above Jamaica else very good condition.

Sidney Hall was an engraver, cartographer and copperplate printer. Worms and Baynton-Williams state in,’British Map Engravers’ that Hall was almost certainly the first engraver to use the new harder steel plates for map work, using plates manufactured by the Jacob Perkins process as early as 1821. He died at the age of forty two and his widow Selina Hall, continued the business, her practice of signing her engravings simply as ,’S.Hall’ has caused much confusion among bibliographers.
