This nice early bird's-eye view of St. Augustine provides an excellent view of the fort and the tiny settlement. In the foreground is a large warship under full sail with flags waving, plus a smaller coastal sailing ship. The ribbon-style title cartouche floats above the scene.
Slightly uneven impression with an expertly repaired tear in blank margin, not affecting print.
