Sea chart of the Bay of Cadiz by Johannes van Keulen. Shows the bay and harbour of Cádiz on the Atlantic coast of Spain after a map by William May. With Rota, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Cádiz. Top left a title cartouche, below right a cartouche with dedication to Gerard Hasselaar. Marked are anchorages and shoals, with a compass rose in the centre.
Old doubled on blue paper. Nautical charts not bound in atlases and intended for navigation at sea were often reinforced with a second sheet, as seen here. This made them easier to handle and a suitable set of different maps could be taken along on the planned voyage.
