is map normally appeared in Thomas Jefferys’ scarce A Description of the Spanish Islands and Settlements on the coast of the West Indies, London, 1762. In that work, the map was folded at the center. This example is unfolded and must be an unusual separately-issued example.
The title-page of the Description notes that the maps were made “chiefly from original Drawings taken from the Spanish in the late War.” It is one of the bet maps of Hispaniola of the 18th century. It also includes the Turks and Caicos, Inagua and Tortuga.
