Carte Du Golfe Persique : J.B Apres De Mannevillette / G. De La Haye

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A large and detailed chart of the entire Gulf that extends from Bassora (Basra), northern gulf to Cape Rasalgate (Ras Al Hadd) in the Indian Ocean. It is interesting to note how much more detail was known of the Persian coastline than the Arabian coastline where Kuwait, Bahrein, the Emirate States and Oman are now established. This interesting example appears to be a pre-publication "proof" version with the inset chart showing the islands of Korgo and Karak, printed on a separate sheet and pasted onto an otherwise blank area of chart. Further a small area of the Iranian coast by Korge and karak Islands has been pasted on as an update. The author, Jean Baptiste D'Apres De Mannevillette, was a hydrographer and navigational mathematician in Le Havre. He held a number of important titles, including "Chevalier D'Ordre Du Roi, Capitain Des Vaisseaux De La Compagnie Des Indes," and also "Associat De L'Academie Royale De La Marine." This chart appeared in his work, "Le Neptune Orientale..." a magnificent collection of up-to-date charts of many newly discovered and plotted parts of the world. This was the largest and most detailed chart of the immensely important waterway to date.
