Plan for a coastal bastion


Plan for a coastal bastion

Schrijver, Cornelis / Esdré, Godfried Carel

Title Leupe: Plan voor eene Lage battery voor de Piscaderis en St. Michielbay.

This sketch contains one of the plans for the fortification of Curaçao’s coastline. The depicted bastion is a prototype which could be constructed at mutliple locations, although since the intial designs in 1742 it is now apparent this bastion is specifically designed for the Piscedera and Sint Michiel Bays. The two shown floor plans hardly differ from the one made five years earlier (VEL1461A and D).
