This sheet includes two maps with fine topographical detail and plenty of place names, especially concentrated along the coasts. The map at top shows Puerto Rico and the nearby Virgin Islands. Below is a map of Hispaniola, oddly divided along a north-south axis rather than an east-west one, with the north part labeled Haiti and the south part St. Domingo.
Original color. The margins have been trimmed to neatline at left and right, apparently by the binder.
