Nieuwe en Aldereerste Afteekening van 't Eyland St. Thomas


One of the great Virgin Islands maps, Gerard van Keulen's splendidly detailed and highly decorative sea chart of St. Thomas includes two large inset charts on the right: the upper one is of St. Thomas's main harbor and the Virgin Islands capital, Charlotte Amalie; the lower chart is of neighboring St. John's Cruz Bay. Along the bottom of the chart are coastal profiles; the cartouche and coats of arms above the mileage scale dedicates the chart to Erik Bredal, governor of the Danish West India Company.
