Lot 0017 Details

Description
  • Title: Carte De L'Isle De Sainte Lucie
  • Subject: St. Lucia
  • Maker: Jacques-Nicolas Bellin
  • Date: 1763-64, Paris
  • Size: 8.25 x 12.25 inches

    The map shows plentiful anchorages, streams, thick forest, and the island's mountainous terrain. Small villages dot the island; an "ancient French fort" is marked near the island's larger anchorages, and a Carib longhouse "Carbet de Caraibes" attests to a surviving native population. A path runs from Saint Lucia's northern harbors to the Soufriere volcano, labeled "Road for the long hunt or to the sulphur mine." Today, the sulphur springs at Soufriere are a tourist destination. The island changed hands many times between the English and the French during the 17th and 18th centuries, but did not become heavily settled until after the sugar industry began to boom in 1765.
