Antique Map of Hispaniola 1722 by Historic Urban Plans
Hispaniola is modern day Haiti and Dominican Republic. Columbus discovered this island on his first voyage, and on its northern coast he established two short-lived settlements. Later, at Santo Domingo, the Spanish in 1502 founded the oldest town of European origin in the Western Hemisphere. A nice map reproduction originally done by Delisle, the greatest French geographer of the 18th century, is both handsome and accurate.
