Beautiful detail and scale feature of the Greater Antilles Islands; Cuba, Jamaica, Espanola, and an acute detail of the smaller surrounding islands.

Two figures hold up a horned animal skin with the title "Insularum Hispaniolae et Cuba Cum Infulis circum jacentibus accurata delimatto" for the cartouche. Two compass roses and several rhumb lines throughout truly give the concept of nautical navigation.
