Color: Hand Color
22.3 x 18.2 inches

An impressive large chart of the island of Martinique. A few mountains are shown in an otherwise blank interior with much better detail of the coasts. Large decorative title cartouche, two compass roses and rhumblines.
Several repaired short tears and a couple of worm tracks infilled with a bit of light discoloration. Margins trimmed but still adequate for framing. Still a very decorative chart.
