A dramatic bird's-eye view of old Santo Domingo with its cathedral, the Ozama fortress and other monuments clearly identifiable. Numerous ships, both European and native sail in the harbor and river.
Exquisite impression on a sheet with narrow margins as published. Some nearly invisible, professional reinforcement of the centerfold, else fine.
