A fine early map depicting a portion of Florida and Alabama along the Gulf of Mexico. On the left are Mobile Bay and Pensacola Bay. At the center is St. Joseph Bay and on the right is the Apalachee Bay. This map is from Bellin's "Le Petit Atlas Maritime Recueil de Cartes et de Plans des Quatre Parties du Monde". This atlas is a wonderful French produced, small sized atlas that depicted a great many parts of the known world. This map covers an area from just west of Mobile bay in present day Alabama to the Cedar Keys in Florida. Maps
