Map of the Piscadera Bay


Map of the Piscadera Bay

Schrijver, Carel Gustaaf / Esdré, Godfried Carel

Title Leupe: Plan van de Piscadores Bay.

This map of Piscedera Bay was most likely made by or copied after Carel Gustaaf Schrijver and Godfried Carel Esdré. It was attached to a mission-report send to the States-General on 22 May 1742. In line with the request of the States-General, the stronghold of Piscedera is redesigned into a stronger redoubt which resembles the one the members of the States-General desired for Sint Kruis Bay, Porto Marie, Sint Michiel Bay and Bulle Bay. Soundings are mentioned and nearby relief as well as the bay are described in annotations.
