Bahia Mosquito and Puerto Escudo, Santo Domingo

DESCRIPTION: Rare nautical / harbor charts of Bahia Mosquito and Puerto Escudo, Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic).

Published in 1809, these antique large-scale port/harbor charts are two of 22 charts of ports in Haiti, Dominican Republic and Jamaica (on 16 plates) published by the Spanish Admiralty, the Direccion Hidrografia, in Part IV of the atlas "Portolano de la America Setentrional Construido en la Direccion Detrabajos Hidrograficos". Because of Spain's secrecy about its New World territories these charts represent some of the earliest detailed charts of these areas. These antique nautical charts do not often appear on the market. Plate Number 7. Scale in cables.
