DESCRIPTION: Rare harbor chart of Cartagena, Colombia. North is oriented to the right. Numerous soundings and hazards are marked. Plate Number 19.

Published in 1809, this large-scale port/harbor chart is one of 41 charts of ports in Part II of the atlas "Portolano de la America Septentrional Construido en la Direccion Detrabajos Hidrograficos" containing charts from the USA (Florida and Texas), Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, and Colombia. Because of Spain's secrecy about its New World territories this chart represents the earliest easily available cartographic record of this area from Spanish sources.
