Falkland Islands, 1787

This is map is part of an inset of a 1787 map of South America by Thomas Kichin. It clearly shows the French port of St. Louis and the British Port Egmont. It still uses the English and French names but does not give any Spanish names with the exception of the 'Magellanic Sea of the Spanish'.
