This rare Dutch sea chart of the bay of Gibraltar is from a contemporary survey by Captain Hendrik Lynslager who spent much of his career in the western Mediterranean. The chart is oriented with north to the left with a large compass rose and includes a key to eleven points of interest. It provides a detailed profile of Gibraltar and the bay including anchorages, soundings, shoals, and sand bars.
Narrow, but adequate margins with some soil and extraneous creasing along centerfold where there are a couple of minor repairs.
