Engraver or Printer: Collin, E. ; Besancon

Published In: Neptune des cotes occidentales d'Amerique sur le Grand Ocean.

Publication Author: France. Depot-general de la Marine

Publication Date: 1828

Publication Reference: Cf. National Maritime Museum. Catalogue, 256.

Publication Note: This volume 7 of Neptune Francois forms an extensive atlas of charts of the western coasts of North and South America, with most charts dated or updated to the 1820's. 25 charts are listed in the index, yet 35 charts are present here. This copy is from the library of the Duc d'Orleans. This issue must be later than the NMM 256, since it has 10 extra charts dated from 1823 to 1828; the latest date in NMM256 is 1822. The eight Vancouver charts appear to be original issues or restrikes from the original plates; the La Perouse charts are absolutely restrikes on newer paper, with the Mappe Monde updated in Australia to show the coastal discoveries in the south. The progression of engraving style from the La Perouse to the 1828 charts is most interesting. The charts of Mexico and South America are largely copies of the Spanish Marine charts issued in the early 1800s showing the Malaspina Expedition tracks (see W. Heckrotte's copy of the Spanish charts). Bound in full red leather covers with decorative gold border and the same titles as above stamped on the spine.
