Rare, Visually Striking Harbor Chart
VAN KEULEN, J. [Amsterdam, 1725]
De Bay Van Oran.
18 ¾ x 22 ½ inches
Few spots, else excellent.
A rare, attractive engraving that vividly evokes the mountainous terrain surrounding Oran’s harbor. Three forts are named and shown in some detail, and there is a vignette of the city, all of which serve as landmarks for navigation.
