This charming small sheet includes maps of several Caribbean islands. The map of Cuba is positioned above Hispaniola with smaller insets of Havana, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and Margarita Island. German text on verso.
The map is sound, but the copper plate was missing the right corner when it was printed, so the border is incomplete. There are a couple small wormholes in the upper margin.
