SAMUEL FAHLBERG, printed 1801, Charta Olver On St.Barthelemy.
ST.BARTHOLOMEW was originally French until 1784 when it was ceded to Sweden after the American Revolution, remaining Swedish until 1877 when it was purchased again by the French. This is a magnificent large scale and detailed map of this nine square mile island, including the property divisions and chart listing the number of houses and inhabitants. All maps including St.Barts are scarce but this is exceptionally rare being one of only three that are available of the island on its own.
