Very attractive sea chart of the Atlantic, north of the equator with good coastal detail. Typical of the strong engraving and thick sturdy paper of the great French survey. Fleur-de-lis, rhumb lines, and pleasing color make this a handsome chart. Two worm tracks have been filled, but do not detract from the map. Couple of small tears and bottom split confined to the margins, else very fine.
