click here to view a large version in a separate window

This title page to Bellin's atlas "Le Neptune Francois" shows Neptune, drawn by hippocampi in his chariot, surrounded by mermen blowing conches. Above the marine cavalcade Mars rides a cloud, accompanied by a herald bearing the title. In the background an armada sets off to war, under thunderclouds. Crowned coats of arms with fleur-de-lys frame the page at top and bottom. The name of the engraver, P. le Pautre, is given in the lower margin. One of the most elaborate and elegantly engraved of all atlas title pages.
