Dutch copperplate-engraved scene of St. Augustine, Florida by Arnoldus Montanus (ca. 1671), hand colored. 14" x 10-1/2". This view, originally drawn by cartographer Gerrit van Schagen, was re-engraved for Montanus (and Ogilby) and hand colored in vivid hues to depict a somewhat fictional view of the port of St. Augustine, then the northernmost bastion of the Spanish Empire in America. While the Castillo de San Marcos and the bustling port were real, the mountains in the background certainly were not. The print is in overall good condition with a center fold where a little bit of color has been lost, a lovely piece for display. map
