This is a rare chart of the Sint Anna Bay in Curacao, and is filled with soundings, shoals, reefs, and topographical detail. Fort Amsterdam, constructed in 1634 by the Dutch West India Company, is depicted overlooking the ocean.
A nice impression with wide margins on watermarked paper, very minor soiling, and a small hole in an unengraved area of map.
