This item has been sold. Please check our homepage for currently available maps.
DeFer's oddly configured, but striking St. Domingue map shows the major Spanish colonial towns and French settlements on the island, hunting scenes, and sailing ships. It has two extraordinary cartouches. The title cartouche features a tortoise hunt; the mileage scale cartouche shows papaya, sugar cane, tobacco, and yucca, and island natives picking papaya and processing yucca.
