Superb large map of Hispaniola with a sizable inset of Martinique. The nicely detailed map covers the area to include the tip of Cuba, Turks & Caicos, and part of the Bahamas. The map is decorated by a grand decorative title cartouche and scale of miles.

Contemporary outline color in the map with later color in the cartouches on a sheet with a medallion watermark. There is light soiling, a couple of small worm tracks along the centerfold that have been professionally repaired, a small chip in the top margin, and a short centerfold separation in the bottom margin.
