A Chart of the Iland of Hispaniola


From an early edition of The English Pilot, this very scarce and striking sea chart of the island of Hispaniola encompasses the east ends of Cuba and Jamaica, giving particular prominence to the Windward Passage, the key shipping lane connecting the Caribbean and the Atlantic. A small but elegant title cartouche adorns the upper right corner. This is splendidly colored and preserved exemplar of an important Hispaniola map.
