Map of Curaçao

Wahl, Hendrik Carel

Title Leupe: Kaart van het Eiland Curaçao.

This is an outline map of Curaçao which, given its almost identical image, possibly served as one, or even as the basis for the reports of naval Captain Cornelis Schrijver in 1738-1739. The map was drawn by Lieutenant Hendrik Carel Wahl, one of the naval officers who assisted Schrijver in carrying out his commission. It mainly contains the location of ports.

North is up.

Scale-bar of [5] Rhineland scale = [approximately 1 : 95,000].
