Description

Beautiful double-page engraved map of Martinique by Nicholas Visscher, published in Amsterdam.

Most of the interior of Martinique is left unmapped. The majority of the labeled settlements are on the southwest coast. Forts and anchorages are shown, as well as houses and plantations with named owners. The eastern region is labeled "Cabesterre ou Demeure des Sauvages" (Abode of the Savages).

The map is characteristic of Visscher maps, with its accurate careful engraving and impressive decorative features.
