Chart of the Centurion, From Manila to the Coast of California .
Unusual chart detailing the route of Spanish galleons between the Philippines and Acapulco. The tracks of British Navy Commodore George Anson and Spanish Nostra Seigniora de Cabadonga are shown.
Anson captured this galleon, which was loaded with silver and two important maps that detailed the route Manila galleons had followed across the Pacific for almost two hundred years. This capture enabled the British to disrupt this vital Spanish commerce.
Good detail of the Pacific islands and the coasts of Baja California and Mexico.
Two sheets, unjoined
