"[Lot of 2] Le Port au Prince dans l'Isle de St. Domingue [and] Environs de Leogane et du Port au Prince dans l'Isle de St. Domingue", Bellin, Jacques Nicolas
Period: 1764 (published)
Publication: Le Petit Atlas Maritime
Color: Hand Color
The two maps show the coastal area of Port au Prince and the immediate area of the city. The first, No. 69, focuses on the fortress (6.8 x 8.5") and the second, No. 68, expands to show the surrounding topography (14 x 8.7"). Both embellished by lovely rococo-style title cartouches, fleur-de-lis, rhumb lines, soundings and ship anchor locations.

Both with full, wide margins. The first is very good, the second has centerfold toning with some offsetting and foxing.
