Fine early copperplate engraving of the island of Hispaniola. The map is based on Gastaldi's 1548 map of the island and is rendered in the characteristic Italian style with a stipple engraved sea and bold border. Italian text on verso describes the island.
Faint uneven toning, still very good with a crisp impression.
