A stunning large format example of Nicolas De Fer and Guillaume Danet's map of the island of Santo Domingo or Hispaniola. The map coves the island in full as well as parts of adjacent Cuba and Turks & Caicos. The island is shown with colored boundaries derived form the 1697 Treaty of Ryswick dividing the island into the western French portion (modern Haiti) and the larger eastern lands of Spain (Dominican Republic). Topography is drawn in profile according to De Fer's idiosyncratic style. There are two elaborate cartouches both depicting local people, flora, and fauna – no doubt intended to illustrate the wealth of the island. The upper cartouche shows two boats in shallow waters spearing sea turtles and is surmounted by a Spanish-looking gentleman with a dashing brimmed hat. The cartouche in the lower right shows people picking fruit.
