<p style='text-align: justify;'>A coloured engraving of a drawing by Lieutenant R.P. Read recording the topographical features of the island of Saint Helena. It is one of the most remote islands in the world, located in the South Atlantic about 1,200 miles west of Africa and about 2,500 miles east of South America. Saint Helena is about 47 square miles in size, and its rough, hilly terrain reflects its volcanic origin. The map documents attempts to introduce agriculture and livestock breeding to the more arable interior. It was produced soon after Napoleon Bonaparte’s exile to the island following his final defeat at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. His residence, Longwood House, formerly the country residence of the Deputy-Governor, appears to the west and north of Jamestown.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>See Janus record <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://janus.lib.cam.ac.uk/db/node.xsp?id=EAD%2FGBR%2F0115%2FRCMS%20190%2F7'>here</a></p>
