Map of Île-à-Vache

Vingboons, Johannes / Gerritsz., Hessel

Title Leupe: Kaart van "Isla de Vaca" bij St. Domingo. Met loodingen (bis).

On the page of his Rotario depicted here, Hessel Gerritsz described the sailing route along the south coast of the modern Dominican Republic. He added two profiles of the coast between Ocoa and Isla Beata. Given the references to leagues, Gerritsz might have copied an English map.

North is up.
