Charles Theodore Middleton.
Perspective View of Roseau in the Island of Dominica in the West Indies.
London: J. Cooke, 1778.

This engraving of Roseau is from Charles Theodore Middleton's A New and Complete System of Geography (1778). The French ceded Dominica to Britain in 1763, recaptured it in 1778 and ceded it again in 1783. The ships in port in this 1778 print appear to belong to the British Navy.
