Carte du Canal des Iles Philippines Par lequel passe le Galion de Manille, et les Isles voisins de ce canal
Lovely mid-18th century Anson chart of the Philippines
Out of stock
A large chart of the Philippines from a French edition of Anson’s account of his circumnavigation, one of the last great buccaneering voyages. Anson captured a Spanish galleon laden with so much silver that they needed thirty-two wagons to transfer it to the Tower of London.
Trimmed to printed border on right, false margin added and tear repaired.
