Description: Canibales Insulae... Joan Blaeu (1596-1673). Engraved map with original hand color in outline. Amsterdam, 1662.. 20 1/2 x 24 inches sheet, 30 x 33 1/2 inches framed. This is the first Dutch chart to focus on the Lesser Antilles. It covers the Windward and Leeward Isles from Puerto Rico to Trinidad and Margarita. Centered on a compass rose with north at right, the chart is less decorative than other maps by Blaeu, having instead a practical navigational chart appearance. Only published in his Atlas Maior from 1662, therefore relatively rare.

Artist or Maker: Joan Blaeu

Literature: Hand-colored engraving on paper
