Carte De La Mer Baltique ... : A. H. Jaillot / Depot De La Marine

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A highly detailed and impressive chart of the Baltic Sea with an inset large-scale map of the port of Danzig, with depths marked. The Depot De La Marine was more properly known as the "Depot Des Cartes Et Plans De La Marine." and was based in Paris. Founded in 1720 with the intention of supplying the French Navy with the most accurate charts, the Depot first utilised existing plates, such as this produced by Jaillot and still in use some 60 years later. The Depot flourished in mid-century under the supervision of the renowned Jacques Nicholas Bellin (1703-1772) appointed the first "Ingenieur Hydrographe de la Marine", ultimately becoming Official Hydrographer to the French King. Despite a couple of light spots, a very attractive example.
