A great example of this view of the island with numerous ships in the foreground and a numbered key naming the important places. Beautifully engraved and highly detailed, this superb view shows the coastline, with its numerous structures, the farms and plantations just beyond and the lush mountains rising above them all. A terrific engraving with great depth and wonderful composition.
