This reproduction of the engraved copperplate "A New Chart of the Seas Surrounding the Island of Cuba with the Soundings, Currents, Ships Courses & c. And a map of the Island itself, lately made by an Officer in the Navy" was originally published by R. Baldwin in 1762 for The London magazine.
As stated in the title, the map gave up-to-date information on soundings, currents, and ships' courses. Mr. Baldwin was an oficer in the British navy.
In the upper left, an inset map, "A Plan of the Harbour and Town of Havana", completes the presentation.
