BORDONE, Benedetto. [Hispaniola from the First Edition of the 'Isolario']
Spagnola. Venice, 1528. Woodcut, 85 x 150mm, set in Italian text Worm holes in text and margins filled.
A map of Hispaniola from Bordone's 'Isolario', one of the earliest printed maps of any part of the Americas. Now divided between Haiti and Santo Domingo, the island was the first landfall made by Columbus and so therefore was the first to be colonised in the New World. This small map reflects this advanced state of colonisation and marks the capital, Isabella, which was situated beside the Ozama river.
