This nautical chart was created by Pierre Mortier and published in his 1693 nautical atlas, Le Neptune Fran├žois. It is provided courtesy of Geographicus Rare Antique Maps.

Among many things, it depicts the “Route des Indes Occidentales en Europe”, demonstrating the persistance of the usage of the term (in translation) “West Indies” from the time of Columbus.
