Plano del Puerto de Vita

DESCRIPTION: Beautiful, black and white copperplate engraved chart of the Port of Vita, Cuba on the northeast coast of Cuba in Holguin province. Commerce at the Puerto de Vita, Cuba includes the Marina Internacional Puerto de Vita with moorings for 38 boats. The port is reported to offer sufficient protection from hurricanes and also is one of the few Cuban ports where small cruising boats can clear customs.

Strong graphic composition; this engraving and the plate of Puerto de Cebollas would make a fine grouping. This chart is about 20% larger than other port plans in this series. Published in 1809, this rare chart of Puerto de Vita was one of 34 charts of Cuban ports published by the Spanish Admiralty, the Direccion Hidrografia, in the sea atlas "Portolano de la America Setentrional Construido en la Direccion Detrabajos Hidrograficos". A fine example with careful, delicate engraving and a wide platemark on high-quality paper. Distance scale is in cables. Part 3. Plate 21.
