This rare bird's-eye view of Acapulco and its bay gives a nice rendering of the town, Fort St. Diego, and the neighboring Puerto Marques Bay. A lettered key identifies each location. Ships fill the harbor, with others at sea as far out as the horizon.
A sharp impression, issued folding, now flattened with a faint stain at top right.
