This map displays the coast of the Essequibo, Berbice and Suriname colonies. In addition to sand-, clay
and mudbanks, soundings are noted. Three notes at the lower middle of the map give clues on how to adjust navigation on this data. On land, only rivers are drawn next to notes on forests. In addition, an insert map at the top of the map shows the mouth of the Suriname river in detail, with north being lower right.
North is up.
