    This copper engraved map shows Cartagena Bay oriented with north to the left. There is good detail of the forts and batteries that were used by the Spanish against Admiral Vernon's fleet in the Battle of Cartagena in 1741. The roads surrounding the bay and the countryside are also depicted. Soundings, shoals, and rocks are identified within the bay. Tirion's Hedendaagsche Historie was initially conceived as the Dutch edition of Thomas Salmon's Modern History. The work began in 1729, but the text was later expanded and the Hedendaagsche Historie was therefore not completed until 1803.

Condition Description: A crisp impression, issued folding on a clean, bright sheet with light toning along the edges of the sheet.

Ref: Kapp (MCC-77) #98; Shirley (BL Atlases) G.TIR-1a #10.
