West Indies – Santa Cruz [Saint Croix]

In stock

This chart of Saint Croix shows soundings etc, with interior detail of relief, roads and settlements, coastal profiles and an inset of Christiansted.

First published in 1856, Parsons’ survey was supplemented with additions from a Danish survey of 1906, and our example was revised in February 1914. This detailed chart of Saint Croix was published shortly before the Danish West Indies were sold to the United States, becoming the US Virgin Islands.
