Fine, large sea chart of the Lesser Antilles from the southwestern shore of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico to the adjacent coastline of Venezuela. The chart is centered around a compass rose and is embellished with an elaborate title and distance scales cartouche, featuring a merchant trading with a native, numerous putti with navigational instruments, and a coat of arms.
Good margins all around. Minor soil at top. Professionally backed with Japanese tissue repairing centerfold separation and filling a few very tiny worm holes.
