Published by Van Keulen, 1779
The firm of Johannes van Keulen was a distinguished publishing house of sea charts and nautical references during the height of the Dutch seafaring years. This superb reproduction map of Carolina was drawn using Mercator's projection and is criss-crossed by directional lines that were used for navigation.
Unique to the time, north points to the right, rather than the top of the page. From Cape Hatteras and running north, shoal depths are also indicated on the map.
