This portolan-style chart was first published by the Dutch chart maker Johannes van Keulen. It appeared in various editions of the van Keulen family's ''Zee-Fakkel'', and ''Zee-Atlas'', published from the 1680s through the first half of the 18th century. Both publications included a large collection of navigational charts for various parts of the world. This particular chart extends from the southern coast of Cuba at the top, to the east coast of Honduras at the bottom left, and to the westernmost tip of Haiti at the right. The island of Jamaica is in the center, with two insets at the top of Jamaican bays. Circa 1712.
