This is a reduced version of the Mercator/Hondius folio map of important islands in the West Indies. This later re-issue of the Cloppenburgh plate omits the moiré pattern in the sea, and features several additions, including cartouches added to the distance scales and several sailing ships decorating the map. Italian text on verso.

A nice example with a few spots of foxing primarily confined to the blank margins and light toning along the edges of the sheet.
