A dramatic and detailed representation of Porto Bello commemorating its capture by the English Admiral, Edward Vernon. The English ships are shown here entering the natural harbour where Spanish ships are moored. A key gives detailed descriptions of the ships and the location of the settlement and its fortifications. This uncommon plan was published by the successors to the firm of Homann's Heirs, the prominent Nuremberg map maker, and is in attractive full wash colour. It is accompanied by the "Scenographia Portus Pulchri" a view from the the mouth of the harbour as the English ships enter and engage with the Spanish defence.
