17th Century Dutch Sea Chart of Florida & Cuba

Fine old color example of Van Keulen's sea chart of Southeastern Florida, the Bahamas and Northeastern Cuba, first issued in the fourth part of the 1684 edition of his Zee-Fakkel, published in Amsterdam.

The chart provides a highly detailed treatment of South Florida, from the Mosquito Lagoon and the Merritt Island area in the north to Tavernier and Islamorado in the south. Six or Seven Keys are named, including Key Biscane, which is called Cayo de Biscambos. Cajo de Melchior Roiz appears, drawn from Hessel Gerritsz' chart of 1631.

The chart provides a detailed look at the major islands of the Bahamas, including Grand Bahama Island, Great Abaco Island, Nassau, Grand Exuma, Eleuthera, New Providence, etc. The treatment of Northeastern Cuba is also among the best of the 17th Century.

This is the third state of the map. The first does not include page numbers. The second includes the number 16 at the bottom left corner. This final state includes the number 16 in both lower corners.

A cornerstone map for Florida, Cuba and Bahama collections.
