... Costes Meridionales D'Angleterre ...L'Isle De Wight ... : A. H. Jaillot / J. N. Bellin

A magnificent chart of the South Coast from Poole in Dorset to Chichester Harbour in Sussex and including the Isle of Wight. The name of the engraver, C.Berey, is shown at lower right. The map was originally published in the "Neptune Francois" in Paris in 1693 by Alexis Hubertwas Jaillot and was soon pirated by Pierre Mortier in Amsterdam and published the same year. This example is from a later publication of the "Neptune Francois" by J.N.Bellin to whom the original plates passed in an official capacity. The chart is crossed by numerous rhumb lines and includes only coastal detail (no inland towns are named) along with sounding depths and sand banks - a useful working document. However, the chart is not without decorative appeal - two elaborate compass roses appear in the Channel. Some minor centrefold and marginal repairs, and backed with archival tissue but a striking and decorative early chart.
