Copper engraving, later hand colored. This antique map shows the sea chart from Guiana. Along the coast are many small place names engraved. At the upper right corner we find a decorative title with the figurative cartouche and the mileage scale inside. 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. t'Amsterdam, Joannes van Keulen Boeck-ver cooper en graad boog maecker by de nieuwe-brug inde gekroonde Lootsman.
