Map of the Surinamese coast

Heneman, Johan Christoph van

Title Leupe: Kaart van de Kust der colonie Suriname, met een gedeelte der rivieren en districten van dien opgenomen en gecarteert door Henneman.

This map of the coast of Suriname was requested by the 'Lieutenant-Colonel' and 'Controleur-Generaal' of the fortifications named van de Graaff. It thus likely served military purposes. All important rivers, creeks and paths are depicted. Sand banks are also indicated. The border between Berbice and Suriname is drawn by a dotted line.

North is below.

Scale-bar of 2 German Miles = 192 ‘strepen’.
