A beautifully engraved map of the Caribbean, to accompany the fourth part of Theodore De Bry's "Grand Voyages". Based on the account of Milanese sailor Girolamo Benzoni, which pre-dated the French expeditions to the area. The map is illustrated with representations of Christopher Columbus' ships and notes on his various discoveries. Florida is shown flattened in the South after Le Moyne, and the Bahamas as too far north. Two threatening sea-monsters appear in the sea, and "Carybdis Magna" or a large whirlpool is noted north of Cuba. Highly decorative, with an elaborate rococo title cartouche and floral border, this example is a strong impression laid on thick paper.
