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.
The papers deal with a variety of themes related to the mid twentieth-century Caribbean: the leased bases in the British transatlantic possessions; anti-submarine activities; Dutch protection of Curaca̧o and Aruba during World War II; Defense and military collaboration in the Caribbean.
