Further Information

The title cartouche on this beautiful chart reads more or less as follows: 'Description of the gulf of Mexico with its surrounding area, Information on Windward Isles collected with the experience of some skilled navigators in this nautical area. Dedicated to the Most Glorious Santa. Rita de Casia by your most devoted Geronimo Augustin de Orttuz, made in the city of Santiago de Leon de Caracas on October 12, 1747'.  Santa. Rita de Cascia to whom this chart is apparently dedicated was a 16th century nun who is the patroness of Impossible Cases - nice one Geronimo!
