The "Neptune Francois" was published in 1693, and its charts are larger and more lavishly decorated then those of any preceding book of its kind.This cart is without year, place and "par ordre du Roi", pointing to a later print, but issued from the original copperplate. It is also without "Imprimerie Royale" belonging to the most recent impression from 1792. Koeman IV,425:10.
