Plan for a bastion for the Piscadera, Saint Michiel, Porto Marie and Santa Cruz Bays

Plan for a bastion for the Piscadera, Saint Michiel, Porto Marie and Santa Cruz Bays
 
 

Title Leupe: Plan van een Horisontale of Lage battery, dienende tot versterking van de Piscaderis, St. Michiel, Porte Marie en St. Cruz Bayen op het Eiland Curaçao.
This sketch belongs to a series of plans (VEL1462-1466) to fortify the Piscadera, Saint Michiel, Porto Marie and Santa Cruz Bays with a small battery and a fort. The design for a bastion shown here improves earlier sketches by decreasing the angles of the corners, and enlarging the sidewalls. These improvements are depicted through a singly floor plan.
Scale-bar of 9 Rhineland rods = 282 ‘strepen’.
