Saint Augustine Map, 1589

Saint Augustine Map, 1589

Date
1589
Description
The oldest item in the State Archives of Florida, this engraved, hand-colored map or view-plan by Baptista Boazio depicts Sir Francis Drake's attack on Saint Augustine on May 28 and 29, 1586. Boazio, an Italian who worked in London from about 1585 to 1603, made maps to illustrate accounts of English expeditions and campaigns. He prepared a series of maps marking Sir Francis Drake's route for Walter Bigges' work on Drake's expedition to the West Indies, first published in 1588 (later editions followed). This map highlights Drake's Caribbean expedition and pictorially portrays how the English corsair captured and burned the fort and city of St. Augustine. The plan also includes an illustration of a dolphin which Boazio very likely copied from the drawings of English America by John White, a member of the 1585 Raleigh settlement of Virginia.
