Map of the Sint Anna Bay and the harbour of Willemstad
Serz, Christoph Gottlieb Friedrich
Title Leupe: Plan van de Haven van het Eyland Curaçao, zoo als deselve de Ingenieur C.G.F. Serz by peylinge bevonden is, den 18 de december 1775..
This rare hydrographical map of the entrance to Sint Anna Bay likely features data from a recent sounding. It was likely drawn and surveyed by the engineer C.G.F. Serz. Serz shows the soundings through projecting their measurements on a surface map. This is a conventional depiction compared to the maps under VEL158 and 159. He also depicts the harbour with an index at the upper right.
Taken from: vide missive Rodier 15 feb 1776 quoh A'dam no. 54.
