French map of the Caribbean, dated 1754, by Jacques Nicolas Bellin, entitled "Carte du Golphe du Mexique et des Isles de l'Amerique," from La Harpe's Abrege de l'Histoire Generale des Voyages, hand colored, showing the routes of the Spanish explorers. 18-1/4" x 13". Lovely map in perfect condition showing the Caribbean Sea and surrounding regions, highly detailed with place names and even with routes of Cortes, de Leon, et al., with ornate title cartouche at upper right, of significant appeal to collectors of Spanish colonial and pirate treasure materials, notably with the colony of Georgia shown, illustrating the difference in time period between this map and the previous lot.
