Title Leupe: Kaart van de Kust van het Eyland Curaçao, tusschen de Oostpunt en de Westkust, waarop de Baayen de Piscadores. St.Michiel. Porto Marie en St. Cruys, in het groot.
Nothing is known about the background to this anonymous map of the whole of the south coast of Curaçao, with supplementary maps of Sint Kruis Bay, Porto Marie Bay and Sint Michiel Bay. In view of the indication of the fortifications in the bays mentioned, in keeping with the various plans from 1741 and the years thereafter, the map can be dated roughly between 1740 and 1750.
North is upper left.
Scale-bar of 3 miles = [approximately 1 : 108,000].
