recent arrival
A finely engraved and precisely defined map by the leading European mapmaker of the turn-of-the-century, Guillaume De l'Isle established new standards of scientific accuracy in the map sphere, having studied mathematics and astronomy under Cassini. There is a finely engraved nautical cartouche complete with Neptune, seahorses, mermen and fishing nets, designed by Charles Simonneau. A note appears at bottom left on the two imaginary islands of Brasil and Assmanda, mentioned on earlier maps. This example, dated 1800, has the later imprint of publisher Philip Buache added. The notable longevity of this map, whose copperplate would have needed some re-engraving to detail, is indicative of the high regard in which De L'Isle's work was held. This is a most attractive example with strong original colour enhancing the title and scalebar cartouches.
