Carte De L'Isle De Wight : J. N. Bellin

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A good impression of this clear and detailed chart of the Solent, Isle of Wight and adjacent mainland coastline. The chart extends from Needles and Lymington to St Helens and Portsmouth. Jacques-Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) was one of the most important and prolific French cartographers of the mid-eighteenth century, in the service of the French Hydrographical Office. He was appointed the first Ingenieur Hydrographe de la Marine, and also Official Hydrographer to the French King. His largest and most comprehensive work is the Petit Atlas Maritime with 581 charts that cover the coasts and important port cities of the known world. The Petit Atlas Maritime is probably the best compilation of plans of maritime towns and harbours of its time.
