Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016
This reproduction of the beautifully-engraved copperplate "Carte De L'Isle De Saint Domingue" was originally published in 1750 by Jacques Bellin in his Histoire Generale Des Voyages. Bellin surveyed all the known coasts of the world after being appointed Ingénieur Hydrographe de la Marine in the French Hydrographic Service.
Shown in detail is the island of Saint Domingue. Known in English as Hispaniola, the island was visited and named La Espanola by Christopher Columbus in 1492.
Today this second largest of the Caribbean Islands is politically divided into Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
