Title Leupe: Schets van het Eiland Curaçao.

This anonymous sketch map of Curaçao, dating from 1805 or 1806, was apparently made in relation to a report of the events at the beginning of 1804, when a British squadron under the command of Captain John Bligh made an unsuccessful attempt to occupy the island.
