Article description

Original engraved map, hand colored in outline when published in V. Levasseur's atlas of French departments. In the centre of this map the islands Guadeloupe, Maria-Galante, the Saint Islands are shown. Below we find a table with descriptive text. The borders are richly decorated with a scene of the vulcano Soufriére. Around the map are various allegories on trading and manfacturing sugar, coffee and cacao together with palm trees. At the left side is a windmill with working people on the fields. At the right side a demolished village after an hurricane or earthquake is shown.
