Each map is complete with its own borders, but the compass rose is split between the two maps. These map include the Islands of Guadeloupe, Dominica and Martinique, St. Lucia, Barbados, St. Vincent and Grenada. Christoph (the Elder) Weigel was a goldsmith, engraver, illustrator and publisher with Johann David Koehler, who had settled in Nuremburg in 1698. Tooley Mapmakers vol. Q-Z, p.367.
