Copperplate engraving of the island. Geographically accurate with some overall scale distortion, which is most notable in present day Bay de Buena Vista, Golfo de Batabano, and Golfo de Guacanayabo. Interior and coastal mapping shows towns, missions, hospitals, and plantations. A very nice impression on quality paper.
