Plan de la Baye D'Alicant : J. Ayrouard/L. Corne

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A rare and detailed chart or port plan of Alicante Bay, Spain is from a scarce atlas entitled: "Recueil de Plusiers Plans des Ports et Rades et de Quelque Cartes Particulieres de la Mer Mediterranee". Coverage extends eastward from Cap St. Paul to past Cap de la Houerta. Little information exists on Ayrouard's background but like Henry Michelot before him, Ayrouard was a pilot of the French royal galley, the Reale, based in Marseille. However, Ayrouard's port plans are very different from Michelot's earlier works. This much larger size and extensively shaded topography are distinctive characteristics of Ayrouard's nautical charts.
