This striking sea chart covers islands from Trinidad and the Venezuelan coastline to Puerto Rico. The central compass rose orients the map with west at the top. There is not a great deal of detail, but major anchorages and shoals are noted. The prominent rhumb lines and decorative title cartouche make this a handsome chart.
