A rare atlas of the Bahama Islands published by the official authorities. Illustrated with 20 maps, followed 6 pages index. In the introduction the number of 53,000 inhabitants is mentioned; "mostly the descendants of African slaves, but with probably a larger proportion of whites than in any other West Indian colony. During the winter months the Islands, especially New Providence, are the resort of a large number of American tourists".

The atlas was published in the year that the Island called by Columbus San Salvador was renamed to Watlings. So likely the first map of "Watlings Island".
