Carte Reduite D'Une Partie Des Costes ... De L'Afrique ... : J. N. Bellin

Jacques Nicolas Bellin was the foremost French hydrographer of the mid-eighteenth century, active from about 1730 to 1772. He was appointed head of the official French chart agency, the Ingenieur Hydrographe De LaMarine. This large-scale chart of the west coast of South Africa extends from Cabo Frio to Baye St.Blaise, and was one of the most detailed available for those areas outside the immediate vicinity of the Cape. Unusually, but quite attractively, the chart has the addition of a ruled manuscript grid and rhumb lines. There is a large imposing titlepiece at lower left, while the land area supports a large shipboard view of Table Bay and a sequence of coastal views. Such was the accuracy and demand for Bellin's charts, they were used for many years. This example has a price of 'cinquante sols' to the lower left edge.
