A good impression of this detailed and very decorative chart of the Solent, Isle of Wight and adjacent mainland coastline. The chart extends from the mouth of Poole Harbour to Sothampton and Selsey Bill, incorporating significant historical maritime coastal regions and areas well-known to leisure sailors today. Included are Christchurch, Lymington, Portsmouth and Hayling Island. The chart was issued in the standard French chart book of the period, the "Atlas Neptune" issued by the Depot De la Marine under the control of Jacques Nicolas Bellin. The title appears in a large, decorative cartouche at lower left along with an explanatory key. The mileage scale runs up the right side of the map. A practical chart by one of the most well-known figures of the French hydrographical department. A very attractive example of one of the best charts to cover the area.
