Orinoco, Trinidad and Tobago and the Windward Islands

This handsome chart of the Gulf of Paria delineates the entrance to the Orinoco River and highlights the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. The chart is oriented with north to the right by two compass roses and extends to include St. Vincent and the southern tip of Barbados. An inset at top right shows Tobago on a larger scale. The delightful scale cartouche features Neptune with his entourage and natives with trade goods. The map is further adorned with a monkey atop the title cartouche and a sailing ship.
