A finely engraved plan of the harbor, fort and village of Acapulco drawn from a hilltop vantage point looking out to sea. Several galleons are pictured approaching or anchored in the harbor. A lettered key identifies several points of interest.
A nice impression with a fleur-de-lis watermark, three small worm holes that have been professionally infilled, and scattered foxing confined to the blank margins.
