A fine sea chart with north oriented to the right by a central compass rose. It depicts the islands of Puerto Rico to Trinidad & Tobago and the northern coast of South America, with all of the small islands in between. A pair of galleons and a decorative cartouche grace the map.
Nice impression with full contemporary color on a sturdy sheet of hand laid paper with some faint toning and a few small spots.
