    This copper-engraved map of Hispaniola names several capes, ports, and bays running along the coast of the island, as well as identifying numerous towns and rivers inland. A compass rose capped with a fleur-de-lis radiates rhumb lines and a title cartouche draped in garlands adorns the upper left corner.
