Why we love this
One of the rarest map we have ever had. Map of Guadeloupe dated 1760. Hand drawn by Marcel Bonne at the request of the French Admiralty. Guadeloupe was to be used as a navy base against the British. Everything is hand done including the paper which is hand laid presumably on the master ship. No printing presses were available on ships due to their size.Explanation and key upper left.
