"Carte de L'Isle de la Barbade"

Published by Jacques Nicolas Bellin, 1746

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

Jacques Nicolas Bellin, Hydrographer to the Crown of France, originally published "Carte de L'Isle de la Barbade" in 1746. This image is a reproduction of his finely-detailed copperplate engraving.

There has been a long-standing dispute about the meaning of the name "Barbados". Some claim that it refers to a bearded fig tree, while others believe that the name was taken from the branches of a vine which root in the ground.

Barbados, the easternmost island in the West Indies, achieved independence on Nov. 30, 1966.

We custom-print this facsimile map on waterproof canvas in our Lahaina studio using the finest archival inks, which are tested and guaranteed not to fade or shift under normal circumstances for over 100 years. Modern printing techniques allow us to improve and enhance the historical subject matter, even as we're careful to preserve and maintain its historical and artistic integrity.
