This view shows the early Spanish settlement at Pensacola in 1743, from Santa Rosa Island looking south from inside the bay. This is the first eyewitness view of Pensacola. Tirion's engraving is based on a drawing by Frenchman Dominic Serres.
Image is fine with dark, early impression, delicate hand coloring, full margins and text-based watermark. There is a little light foxing in left blank margin, otherwise a fine example.
