This is one of a series of maps that England's first literary periodical, the London Magazine, published during the Seven Years' War, a global conflict lasting from 1756-63. It documents Caribbean islands, from Santo Domingo and Puerto Rico at upper left, through the Leeward and Windward islands at right, and Lesser Antilles off South America. Prevailing trade winds are noted, reflecting research by astronomer Sir Edmond Halley and the navigator William Dampier. Many of the Lesser Antilles changed hands during this period with their colonial status decided at the Treaty of Paris which ended the war.
