This is a very nice street plan of Santo Domingo, the present capital of the Dominican Republic. A legend indicates the location of 22 significant features on the map. Santo Domingo is the oldest continually inhabited European settlement in the Americas, and was at the time of this map's publication a Spanish colonial possession. The chart is embellished with rococo-style cartouche, rhumb lines, and fleur-de-lys.
There is some toning and minor edge chipping in the wide original margins, well away from the map.
