This attractive bird's-eye plan shows the town of Calliaqua (Cariacoua) at the southern end of St. Vincent. Two "proposed forts" are depicted, as well as soundings, shoals, and a location suitable for anchoring both small and large vessels. The tiny island just south of Young Island, here called Le Grand Islet, later became the location for Fort Duvernette.
Watermarked paper with wide margins and very minor soiling.
