By the terms of this treaty of Versailles between Great Britain and Spain, Britain ceded East and West Florida to Spain in exchange for the Bahamas and St Kitts, and the navigation of the Belize and Hondo rivers was made common to both nations. The map shows the area between the two rivers where the British were permitted to exploit "palo de tinte" or dyewood which was an important source of wealth until it was replaced by synthetic dyes in the nineteenth century. An English edition also appreared in 1783 and the preliminary articles, drawn up on 20 January 1783, were also published as Articulos preliminares in 1783.
The second work is an amendment to article 6, stipulating that the British should abandon the Mosquito Coast in exchange for more territory in Belize and forestry concessions.
