An Exact Draught of the Bay and Harbour of Vigo

Fine contemporary plan of the Battle of Vigo Bay, in the War of the Spanish Succession, from Rapin & Tindall's History of England.

The War was an attempt by the joint Anglo-Dutch forces under Admiral Rooke to capture a Spanish treasure fleet that had recently arrived in Vigo from Havana. Despite the heavy defences Rooke won a famous victory, although the bulk of the silver bullion escaped him. Rumors that the treasure sank in the Bay were incorporated into the plot of Jules Verne's novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.
