Porcacchi's map of Jamaica (with parts of Hispaniola and Cuba), originally published in the 1576 edition of his The World's Most Famous Islands, appeared in many editions through the early 18th century. This exemplar is from Lasor a Varea's Universus Terrarum Orbis, published in Padua in 1713. A delightful cartouche, a compass rose and fanciful marine creatures add to this scarce map's appeal.
