Rare and uncommon edition of this fine map of Hispaniola and the neighboring islands Jamaica, Caymans, Porto Rico and eastern part of Cuba. Hispaniola divided into the five major cacicazgos or native Taino kingdoms, that Columbus found in 1492. A decorative floral cartouche adds to the appeal of this historically interesting map. From Atlas Portatif pour servir a l’intelligence de l’Histoire Philosophique et Politique des etablissements et du commerce des Europe''''ens dans les deux Indes. With French text in title cartouche and an additional title in Dutch underneath the map. Prepared by Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772): one of the most important and proficient French cartographers of the mid-eighteenth century. He was appointed the first Ingenieur Hydrographe de la Marine, and also Official Hydrographer to the French King. Bellin produced a substantial number of important separately issued maps, particularly reflecting continuing discoveries and political events in the Americas. Verso blank.
