This beautiful map of the Caribbean is flanked by the southern tip of Florida and the coastlines of Honduras, Nicaragua, and northern South America. It contains a dense listing of place names, mountain ranges, rivers, and navigational hazards, more than most charts from this period. There is particularly good detail of Cuba, Jamaica and Hispaniola.
