DESCRIPTION: Rare antique nautical / harbor chart of Pequeno Guave (Petit-Goâve) Haiti, one of the oldest cities in the country. Coverage includes from punta Agujereada to punta de Piedras.

Published in 1809, this large-scale port/harbor chart is one of 22 charts (on 16 plates) of ports in Haiti, Dominican Republic and Jamaica 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 charts do not often appear on the market. Plate Number 11. Scale in cables.
