This is an authentic antique map of the Lesser Antilles by Johannes Van Keulen. The map was published in Amsterdam in the year 1684.

This is an impressive hand colored example of Van Keulen’s nautical map showing the Lesser Antilles with a westward orientation from St. Martin in the north to Barbados in the southeast. Other islands displayed in the map include Montserrat, Antigua, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St. Lucia, and St, Vincent. Towns, anchorages, and ports are labeled throughout the map. In the top left, three inserts depict the Les Saintes archipelago as well as harbors on the islands of St. Lucia and Guadeloupe.

As is common among sea charts, names of coastal towns and ports are listed while the interior remains void of any detail. Rhumb lines intertwine the map while a compass rose and sailing ship adorn the sea. A decorative cartouche in the lower right shows two allegorical figures standing atop a platform containing three nautical scales of distance.

Condition: Map is in A+ condition with superb color on heavy paper and full margins.
