click here to view a large version in a separate window

A very good example of the first large scale map / chart of the island of Cuba. Jacques Nicolas Bellin was head of the French Depot de la Marine and responsible for most French hydrographic output mid-eighteenth century. His work included also small maps of all countries of the world for Prevost's geographic dictionary of travels, the small charts for the 5-volume "Petit Atlas Maritime", and the more decorative large format charts first issued in "Hydrographie Francoise" and reissued through the rest of the century. This is an early printing, retaining the date of engraving 1762, before the addition of a sheet price or of the Depot's publication stamp, The title appears in a large rococo cartouche with an alligator, snakes and foliage surrounding.
