Sea chart of the coast near Bordeaux, where the Garonne River meets the Atlantic Ocean. The coastline is filled with dunes, a few villages, castles and other buildings. Central on the map is the lighthouse, Cordouan Tower. Rhumb lines fill the map emanating from a fine compass rose. The large map is printed on heavy weight paper and blue-backed for marine use. This chart was made by Gerard Hulst van Keulen, the last in the long line of cartographers from this famous Dutch firm.
Tiny bit of light foxing along folds, overall remarkable condition for a large working sea chart.
