Map Description: A dramatic 1872 James Imray blueback nautical chart of maritime map of the Bahamas, south Florida, and northern Cuba. This massive map covers from Cape Canaveral to northern Cuba and Great Inagua Island, and from the western top of Cuba to Turks and Caicos. The work of one of the best marine chart makers of his era, this superb chart was the best general nautical chart of the Bahama Islands, and the surrounding waters, available. This is a working nautical chart that was owned by the T homas Reese Anderson, the New Brunswick captain, of the i>Arcadia , a barque built in, Rockland New Brunswick. This chart traces the route of the i>Arcadia as it sailed down the coast of Florida, through the Florida Straits, to alight at various ports along the Cuban coast and Florida Keys. Throughout Anderson makes copious notes on the voyage and waters, as well as corrections to the chart. Anderson returned form this voyage and began a longer voyage to E ast Asia as captain, of the A lbania . After traveling extensively in, the east indies, he returned to the Americas where he retired a man of substance in, Sackville, New Brunswick. He died shortly after having been hit by an oncoming train, in, which he was, ironically, partially invested. The chart has been printed on three sheets which where joined by the publisher and backed with blue paper – hence the term 'Blue-back.' It was issued by James Imray and Sun from their offices at 89 Minories.
