A rare and very attractive early chart, oriented with north to the right of the sheet, of the Caribbean islands from Puerto Rico to Trinidad and Tobago. A finely engraved title cartouche is decorated with dolphins, a merman and mermaid and sea nymphs. Expert repair to old centrefold split, as often.
