L'Isle de la Jamaique. par M. T. J. Ingenieur Anglois a Paris, 1779

Rare French Map of Jamaica, published by Jean Lattre in Paris.

The map provides remarkable topographical details, including mountains, rivers, islands, and other coastal features. Towns, Roads, Plantations, Churches and other features are also shown.

The map includes two large inset maps of the Harbors of Bluefields and the the area around Kingston and Port Royal.

The text provides a lengthy history and description of Jamaica, noting its discovery in 1494 by Christopher Columbus, among other facts.

The map is based upon a map by Thomas Jefferys, circa 1775 and originally published by Sayer & Bennett.

Jean Lattré (fl. 1743-1793) was a Parisian bookseller and engraver who published many maps, plans, globes, and atlases. He worked closely with other important French cartographers, including Janvier, Bonne, and Delamarche, as well as other European mapmakers, such as William Faden, Santini, and Zannoni. Lattré is also interesting due to his propensity to bring suits against those who copied his work; plagiarism was common practice in eighteenth-century cartography and mapmakers struggled to maintain proprietary maps and information.
