Large attractive sea chart of the North Atlantic with good coastal and island detail. A good portion of each of the continents is shown with major port cities named. Typical of the strong engraving and thick sturdy paper of this great French survey. Fleur-de-lis and rhumb lines make this a handsome chart. Engraved by Dheulland, produced for Le Comte de Maurepas, the Ministre de la Marine.
Some uneven toning and color slightly faded. Folds unnecessarily reinforced with tissue on verso. Few minor repaired tears in margins.
