This copper-engraved map of Hispaniola names several capes, ports, and bays running along the coast of the island, as well as identifying numerous towns and rivers inland. A compass rose capped with a fleur-de-lis radiates rhumb lines and a title cartouche draped in garlands adorns the upper left corner.
A nice impression, issued folding with wide margins and faint offsetting. There are four small damp stains along top edge of sheet resulting in short tears, far from image.
