Title : The Island of Cuba with part of the Bahama Banks and the Martyrs. . ..
Map maker : JEFFERYS, T..
Date : London, Sayer and Bennett, c.1775.
Size : 18.5 x 24.8 inches. / 47.0 x 63.0 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :Engraved nautical chart showing tracks, rhumb lines, currents, etc. Relief shown pictorially, depths by soundings. Covers also the southern Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas.
The interior of Cuba to show towns, forts, ranches, roads, and topography. On the southern coast several Hatos are located. Hatos were part of a unique land distribution system in Spanish colonial Cuba. Each Hato consisted of a circular area with a ratio of 2 leagues that was dedicated to the raising of livestock. The nautical information includes soundings, navigational hazards, channels, reefs and notes concerning The Florida Stre (Gulf Stream), and the route of the Spanish galleons, which are pictured in several locations. Two partial compass roses anchor the bottom of the chart.

This is sheet 7 of Jeffery's 16-sheet chart of the West Indies. This is a superb atlas of the West Indies and a companion atlas to Jeffery's American Atlas also first issued in 1775.
Sheet CG.7 of Sayer's "North American Pilot ".
Jeffery's died in 1771. Sayer and Bennet acquired his materials in preparation for this atlas, and published the atlas posthumously under his name (as they did with the American Atlas) in 1775. The heart of this atlas and the most detailed part is the sixteen sheet large chart and index sheet of the whole of the West Indies. The rest of the atlas consists of charts of the Atlantic Islands and the British Channel, as well as individual maps and charts of seventeen islands in the West Indies. Twenty seven pages of text gives the sources for the maps and charts, and a historical account of the West Indies. Three of the large chart maps also appeared in the American Atlas. Comparing the two Florida sheets in this atlas to the same sheets in the 1775 American Atlas, numerous changes to the coast lines and other features appear. That would indicate that Sayer updated the charts as the atlas was reissued - Phillips shows issues of 1775, 1781, 1787, 1794, 1796, 1807, and 1818. With the 1794 and later editions, 20 maps are added of various additional islands. Sayer and Bennet also published in 1775 a smaller version of this atlas called "The West India Islands: From Actual Survey and Observations…" that consisted of the same text, a general chart of the Islands, and the same sixteen or seventeen (depending on the edition) charts of the islands that appear in the larger version. Finally, Jeffery's himself published in 1762 "A Description of the Spanish Islands and Settlements on the Coast of the West Indies" which was issued in quarto, with a general chart and 32 maps and plans of harbors and towns.
