Plano del Fondeadero Bleufields

Plano del Fondeadero Bleufields Jamayca (Bluefields, Jamaica)

DESCRIPTION: Chart of southwest coast of Jamaica near Bluefields Bay (Bleufields), near the current town of Belmond. Noted feature include El Fuerte on a point jutting into the Caribbean and a small rocky island "Arrecife del Moro". North is oriented to the left.

Published in 1809, this large-scale port/harbor chart is one 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 small charts do not often appear on the market. Plate Number 6. Scale in cables.
