Fine view of the harbor of Lima from the sea with numerous warships fighting in the foreground. Legend at upper left identifies the buildings onshore, and ships as to whether they are Spanish or Dutch. A fine example of this copper engraving.
Lovely, early and dark image on thick, hand laid paper. Printer's crease at bottom.
