Further Information

The Virgin Islands from English and Danish surveys.  Originally released by Thomas Jefferys, Geographer to the King. London, in February 1775 for inclusion in his West Indies Atlas.  The chart presented here is a 1794 edition printed from the original plates and released by Laurie & Whittle.

This is every inch a classic chart.  It is beautifully balanced in its presentation of the Virgin Islands to the point where the Island of St. Croix is brought onto the chart where in fact it is located, at this scale, much further south.  To complete the effect Jefferys has done the same with the Leeward Island chain of Islands; Anguilla, St. Martins, St. Christopher's (St. Kitts), Saba and St. Eustatia. The eastern end of Porto Rico is also included.
