This magnificent and detailed chart of the Limerick River and Galway Bay also includes an inset plan of the port and castle of Kinsale. Engraved by Charles Amadeus De Berey, whose signature is given in the lower left corner, the map was first published by Mortier in the "Neptune Francois" of 1693. Many of Mortier's plates were later acquired by the French Depot De La Marine and re-published. Here the "Ordre du Roy" in Mortier's title cartouche has been removed and the compass roses have been replaced by an elaborate design incorporating a head amidst a blazing sun, a tribute to Louis XIIII, the Sun King. With sounding depths shown and sand banks marked, this is a practical chart for navigation. Printed on thick chart paper and here with attractive later hand colour.
