A very handsome, small map adorned with rhumb lines, fleur-de-lys, and two decorative rococo-style cartouches. Filled with good detail and place names throughout. Also includes the islands of Mari-Galante, Terre d'Enhaut, and Terre d'Enbas.
A nice impression on watermarked paper with light offsetting. There are several small damp stains along top edge of sheet, resulting in several short tears, all far from image.
