Detailed and attractive chart of the Mediterranean, Spanish and Black Sea coasts, from Volume 2 of the "Navigantium ...". Emanuel Bowen (c.1693-1767) was an English engraver, publisher and mapseller who was active in London from about 1720. His prolific output both as engraver and publisher earned him recognition both in England and France, for he held the dual appointment of Engraver to both George II and Louis XV of France. Bowen engraved large numbers of maps for general atlases, geographical text-books and periodicals. Bowen also produced a large number of English county maps. Bowen maps are typically clear yet detailed, and often found with decorative title cartouches, illustrated with relevant imagery. An interesting and decorative map.
