This Plan Of The Harbour, Town And Forts Of Porto Bello ... 1740

This Plan Of The Harbour, Town And Forts Of Porto Bello ... 1740 : P. Durell / Harding & Toms

Very scarce plan of Portobello, on the Panama isthmus, depicting its capture by the British in 1739; the mapmaker Philip Durell was present at the action, and forwarded this sketch to the London publishers Samuel Harding and William Henry Toms. Produced at the very large scale of almost 6 inches to one mile the plan is annotated with a key identifying the finely etched Men of War illustrated in the bay. Harding and Toms published two virtually identical plans of the battle, this apparently the earlier version, although both bear the same date. A fascinating separately issued broadsheet, which the publishers' offered for 'One Shilling'. Traces of an original 'centrefold', but otherwise a very nice example of this fine plan.
