German Map of Falklands, 1844

This is a German map from 1844, hence the number of German terms appearing on it. Most of the French names have disappeared leaving mainly English names with a few Spanish ones. Port Egmont is still marked on the map. This map divides the islands up into East and a West Falkland Island. This map credits the discovery of the islands to Davis in 1592.
