Fine panoramic view of Tunis from the sea with various types of ships and boats in the foreground including two fully manned galleys with oars at the ready. The fortified harbor is well rendered. The title cartouche is festooned with flags and armor. Keys to the engraving are at each side.
Very dark impression and strong coloring. Scattered light foxing.
