Map of the minor Antilles.
Canibales Insulae.
This map of the Antilles was published in 1662 in the 11th part of Joan Blaeu's (1598-1673) 'Atlas Maior'.
The indigenous population of the Caribbean region called themselves 'Canibales'. They ate human flesh, which was considered so unusual that the name 'Canibales' came to be used as the name for consumers of human flesh in almost every language.
