Map of Martinique

Map of Martinique
 
 

Title Leupe: Insula Matanino Vulgo Martanico in lucem edita.
This map of Martinique divides the island into two: a French region in the west and one of the indigenous population in the east labeled Cabesterre ('dwelling of the savages'). As might be expected, the map provides most details on the former part, especially when it comes to the coast. The map itself is only decorated with mountains; the title cartouche contains wreaths and navigational equipment on top of a pillar.
North is up.
Scale-bar of 1 ½ German miles = 86 ‘strepen’.
