Title Leupe: Kaart van de Bulle bay en bygelegen Kust.
On this map of Bullen Bay by Carel Gustaaf Schrijver en Godfried Carel Esdré a new stronghold is drawn. The map was attached to the report to the States-General of the engineers from 22 May 1742. Their design was taken along in the resolution of the States-General from 9 October 1743. This resolution proposed a newly designed stronghold of the same larger type as the Estates-General desired for Sint Kruis Bay, Porto Marie, Sint Michiel Bay and Piscadera Bay. Soundings are given along the bay.
