Copper engraving, uncolored as published. This antique sea chart shows Guinea. Along the coast are many small place names engraved. At the bottom of the map we see a large figurative title cartouche. The Dutch firm and printing house van Keulen was one of the most important and leading publishers for sea charts during the ending 17th century. Their firm was leading in providing charts to the Dutch East India company also their charts relating to the Americas were of high importance. Most charts were highly accurate for that period and were as well nicely ornated with decorative allegoric cartouches.
