Pas Caarte Van Rio Gambia : J. Van Keulen

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A spectacular chart from the leading Dutch hydrographers of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. The Van Keulen family started publishing charts and sea-atlases about 1670 and became official hydrographers to the VOC, the Dutch East India Company. As such, the family had access to the latest official reports of merchants, navigators and hydrographers from all parts of the world. This fine large-scale chart combines two copperplates on two sheets joined and is in fine original colour. The area depicted extends from Cape Verde to the Sirra Leone estuary with inset details of Goeree Island and the "Serliones" estuary. At the left are coastal profiles with important features identifiable from the sea. A rare and beautiful chart.
