This is a finely detailed Vintage Map Shop reproduction of a sea chart of the Caribbean from the late 17th century. The map displays numerous sea ports and towns from Virginia in the north to Mexico Honduras the northern coast of South America and all the islands in between. A decorative title cartouche featuring natives and explorers adorns the top let corner of the map while a similar vignette is used to decorate two scales of distance (German and Spanish) in the lower right corner. Compass roses a sailing ships accent the sea throughout the map.
What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
