The chart shows how, in 1638, the fleet commanded by Johan Maurits van Nassau-Siegen sails into the bay to capture the city of Salvador from the Portuguese. However, the fleet did not succeed in its intention. In 1624 and 1625 the city was held by the WIC for several months.
The chart was previously published in: C. Barlaeus, 'Rerum per octennium in Brasilia', Amsterdam 1647.
