[Two items] Abbildung Welcher Gestalt die Spanische Silberflota von dem Hollandischen / Das Eylandt Cuba mit Deroselben Gelegenheit
Selling price: $650
Sold in 2008
Vignette portraits of General Pieter Heyn and Admiral Cornelius Long overlook the scene.
The Dutch are shown in the foreground of the map, with the Spanish trapped further in the Bay. The Spanish had been gathering in Patanca Bay to begin their long voyage across the Atlantic to Spain, after having rendezvoused in Cuba with the riches from the numerous silver mines within the Spanish New World possessions.
The Dutch were able to seize the tremendous wealth that these Spanish ships contained. This view succinctly captures the world-wide struggle that was underway during this period for economic dominance among the Spanish, Dutch, French, British and other European powers.
In lower left corner a map of Cuba who identifies Havana and numerous other place names: "Das eylandt Cuba mit deroselben gelegenheit".
A numbered key identifies the fleets and 20 ships with their captains.
The map was first published as a broadsheet to record this famous event. The map also appeared in De Bry's Grand Voyages Part XIV. as published by Merian in Frankfurt.
