A wonderfully decorative sea chart, oriented to the south, of the Caribbean Coast from Costa Rica to northern Colombia. The Isthmus of Panama is indicated as Tierra Firma. Also shown are four inset maps of the Port of Carthagena; S. Barnardo Islands; port of Nombre de Dios and Porta Bella and Escuda de Veragna. Van Keulen maps are known for their exquisite detail and magnificent decorative appeal; this chart is a fine example of their output.
