This is state four of the map. The imprint is unchanged, but 'Plantation House' is now labelled 'Plantation House The Residence of S.r H. Lowe The Govenor'. The island, situated in the South Atlantic, was chosen as the place for the Emperor Napoleon's second exile because of the ring of high cliffs that would make escape a virtual impossibility. The initial issue of this map was published in 1815 to capitalize commercially on his exile to the island.

Hand-coloured folding engraved map. Age toned. Some margins 'chipped'.
