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 focuses on Puerto Rico, but extends eastward to include the Virgin Islands and the Leeward Islands of Anguilla and Saint Martin. There are also two insets depicting the main harbors on Saint Martin and Puerto Rico.
