"Carte Reduite Du Golphe De Gascogne Pour Servir Aux Vaisseaux Du Roy Carte Dresse Au Depost Des Cartes Plans Et Journaux De La Marine Par Ordre De M. Rouilles Chr. Comte De Joui & Secretaire D'Etat Ayant Le Department De La Marine". This magnificent chart of the Bay of Biscay was published in Jacques Nicolas Bellin's atlas, "Le Neptune Francois ...". It extends from Galicia in Spain around the Atlantic coastline into France and the Bay of Biscay, northwards as far as Britanny. The title appears in a decorative cartouche at upper left. This working sea chart includes rhumb lines and sounding depths, all intended to aid navigation. Bellin (1703-1772) was one of the most important and prolific French cartographers of the mid-eighteenth century in the service of the French Hydrographical Office. He was appointed the first Ingenieur Hydrographe de la Marine, and also Official Hydrographer to the French King. Bellin was responsible for an enormous output of charts and maps, of which this chart of the Bay of Biscay is a most striking example. Printed on thick chart paper.
