The Island of Jamaica

Late state of Mount & Page's sea chart of Jamaica, from the Fourth Book of the English Pilot.

The chart was perhaps the single most widely utilized English sea chart of Jamaica during the first half of the 18th Century, as the success of the English Pilot gave it a dominant place in the Sea Atlas market, especially among English speaking mariners. Unlike many atlas maps, the English Pilot was used extensively at sea, and as such, the condition of the maps frequently reflects active use.

The map includes a large inset of Port Royal. Issued at a time when the English influence in the Caribbean was on the rise and the English and French were vying for regional supremacy, the chart is an excellent artifact of a period when Jamaica was one of the most important economic colonial forces in the British Empire.
