Description :Two maps on one sheet, Jamaica above Bermuda. Jamaica is engraved to show the plantations, denoting those growing sugar, cotton, cacao, and indigo. The map of Bermuda includes an interesting cartographic error resulting from his copying John Speed's map of 1627.
In that map, Bermuda was superimposed over a map of the coastline of New England and Virginia to show the relative position of Bermuda. Le Rouge dropped the coastlines of North America, but left the small depiction of Bermuda, which appears on this map as a small offshore island named Bermudos.
George Louis Le Rouge was active from 1740- till 1780 as a publisher, and was appointed engineer for the King of France.
From his Atlas Nouveau Portatif à l'usage des militaires et du voyageur? The atlas was dedicated to le Comte de Maurepas, and was sold by Le Rouge, Prault, Robinot and Briasson in Paris.
Condition : A good and dark impression. Very good condition.
