The prolific French cartographer Bellin's classic West Indies and Gulf Coast map for Prevost's influential Histoire Générale des Voyages includes the routes of the conquistadors Ponce de Leon, Hernandez de Cordoba, and Cortez, as well as a delightful scroll and floral cartouche. This exemplar, a strong dark impression, beautifully preserved, is from the scarcer German edition of Prevost's work.
