French copperplate-engraved engraving, ca. 1754, of a bird's eye view of Santo Domingo, engraved by Jacques-Nicolas Bellin and published in Antonie Francois Prevost's Historie Generale des Voyages, hand colored. 13" x 10". Simple rendering of the 18th-century town of Santo Domingo, complete with sailing ships, a fort, a central church, and most strikingly, a poor soul hanging from a gallows (next to a church!). Good condition with center professionally seemed, marred only by red dye flowing from the middle of the left side to the bottom, impairing a bit of the left corner of the image.
