A Plan Of Table Bay With The Road Of The Cape Of Good Hope : J. Van Keulen / R. Laurie & J. Whittle

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A fine and rare chart of Table Bay and the Cape of Good Hope with good internal detail. Published by the map and chart business of Robert Laurie and James Whittle, this is based on a chart previously published in Amsterdam by Johannes van Keulen about 1740. A central compass rose orients north to the left and there are two scales in Dutch miles and sea leagues. A wealth of detail shows the meandering course of the Salt River entering the bay just to the east of Capetown which is shown in detail with the fort, Company Gardens and the Gallows highlighted. Table Mountain is shown, flanked by Devil's Mount and Lyon's Mount. In the bay the Anchoring Ground and Robben Island are surrounded by depth soundings and to the top left there is an inset engraving of "A South View Of The Cape by Monsieur L'Abbé de la Caille". Printed on thick chart paper and with reinforcement to weak centrefold but otherwise a good example of this unusually detailed chart.
