Attractive and decorative steel engraved map of the island group centered on Guadeloupe and Pointe-a-Pitre. Inset of Anguilla and St. Martin. Surrounding vignettes depict history and commerce such as a sugar mill, bales of cotton and a dramatic view of a earthquake in progress. Vignettes uncolored, as issued.
Lovely example with very wide margins and thick paper.
