Carte de la Mer D'Ecosse contenant les Isles et Costes Septentrionale et Occidentales D'Ecosse et les Costes Septentrionale D'Irlande.

(No place, no date(1693)). Very large engraved seechart, measuring 60 x 86,5 cm. in original outline colouring. The chart showing the Northern part of England from Lancaster to Banf, of Ireland from Blackrock to Carlingford and all the Islands to the north: Shetland, Orkney, Faroe etc. etc. A fine impression on good thick paper with the watermark: BYCOLUMBIER. Folded down the center.

The "Neptune Francois" was published in 1693, and its charts are larger and more lavishly decorated than those of any preceding book of its kind. The chart is without year, place and "par Ordre du Roi", pointing to a later impression, but issued from the original copperplate. It is also without "Imprimerie Royale" belonging to the imprints from 1792. Koeman IV,425:9.
