Le Canal Royal De Languedoc ... De L’Ocean Et De La Mer Mediteranee ... : J. B. Nolin

Magnificent map on three sheets joined. Linking the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, here is the full extent of what since Bonapartist days has been known as the “Canal Du Midi”, considered at the time to be one of the greatest construction works of the 17th century. Such is the combination of technical excellence and beauty that Unesco has declared the canal and its adjuncts a World Heritage Site. Running from the city of Toulouse down to the Mediterranean port of Sète the map, published three years after the canal’s completion, itemises the locks and aqueducts, giving each a technical vignette illustration. Also present are six inset maps, the arms of the sponsoring aristocracy and a magnificent cartouche sprawling from the centre to each edge. The canal remains in use today passing by Villefranche, Carcassonne and Beziers with its merchant traffic replaced by pleasure boaters. A spectacular map of a renowned engineering accomplishment.
