Brief Description: Combination nautical chart and property map of the Bermuda Islands. Map has rhumb lines showing navigation routes, but the distances between the islands and mainlands are extremely shortened. The main island of Bermuda is divided into "tribes" and these areas are further divided and labeled with numbers, which correspond to the table at the bottom of the map and identify land owners. Latin inscription at the bottom of the map relates the story of five men who were lost at sea for seven weeks, and eventually landed in Ireland, in 1616.
