This is a charming illustration of the western half of the island while it was under France's domination. Abundant place name detail is noted along the coastal region while the interior's topography and watershed are nicely developed. Rococo-style title cartouche, rhumblines, compass rose, and fleur-de-lys decorate.
Toned along centerfold, else very good. On thick hand laid paper with wide margins and watermark.
