Further Information

The two sheets which make up this attractive chart are very much in the style of other charts produced by Thomas Jeffreys as far back as 1768.  This particular material was, after Jeffreys death in 1771, published posthumously under his name by Sayer and Bennett in ‘The West Indies Atlas’ (1775).  The chart presented here is in fact an amalgamation of two of those separate sheets (see Heritage Charts A412 & A504), which by 1794 had been acquired by London publishers Laurie & Whittle and reissued as part of their new catalogue.

Jefferys includes on the northern sheet a great deal of hydrographical information around the Florida Peninsular and around the Islands of the Bahamas.  This includes soundings and channels.  He also marks sandbanks, reefs currents, anchorages and includes 'rhumb' or 'loxodromic' linesª.
