Abstract The Caribbean Charts and Engravings 1555-1818 collection comprises fifty-five framed items that showcase the archipelago as well as individual islands drawn from the perspective of cartographers at that time. In addition to statistical data, topography and local history, several of the maps have unique illustrations which provide more information on the cultural aspects of the islands. It is a good resource to study cartography in the Caribbean.
Scope and Contents The letters, though relatively few in number, shed light on a wide range of issues. Among the most interesting are a couple which make reference to the short-lived Federation of the West Indies. Among the papers is a site plan of the Government Offices and proposed Legislative Council for the island of Dominica, dated August 1961.
