Very well described chart of the island showing administrative subdivisions (Paroisee du Grand Marquis, etc.), villages, churches, watershed, and some relief. Many features are named along the coastline. The rococo-style title cartouche incorporates a distance scale. At lower left "Tom XV in 4o. No. 14" and lower right "Tome 15 in 8o. Page 446."
