Plan de la Ville de Carthagene des Indes

This item has been sold. Please check our homepage for currently available maps.
A marvelously detailed plan of Cartagena and its suburbs, with a letter and number key identifying 52 major monuments and fortresses of this critically important defender of the Spanish Main and meeting point of treasure galleons. A note in the lovely rococo-style cartouche states that the map was drawn up (by Antonio de Ulloa) on orders of the king in 1735. From Prevost d'Exiles' influential travel book, Histoire Generale des Voyages.
