Martinique circa 1685

Today's map is another beauty.

This Nicolas Visscher II map from the latter half of the 17th century titled "Insula Matanino Vulgo Martanico in lucem edita" displays the French Caribbean island of Martinique. A million thanks to the contributor for this great piece!

That's really nice. I particularly like the detail on the legend.
