Cote est D'Irlande de la Baie de Dublin de la Baie de Belfast
DESCRIPTION: Interesting and uncommon folding 1895 edition (bottom of chart) of an antique nautical chart first printed in 1875. This intact linen-backed large folding chart of the Irish sea was published by the French Admiralty (Depot des Cartes et Plans de la Marine). Covers a wide area of Ireland and western portions of Britain including Belfast and Dublin , Isle of Man, and Holyhead Island. Lighthouses highlighted in yellow.
Folds to 5" x 9 1/2". Folds into 3 sections horizontally and 8 sections vertically. With a printed seller's sticker on front: " Maison Andriveau Goujon. Henry Barrere, Editeur-Geographe. 21 Rue du Bac, Paris". On the sticker below the seller's attribution is a script annotation of the chart title and a date of 1906.
Insets of the Port of Killough, Port of Ardglass, and a small view of the entrance to the Bay of Dundalk. Platemark is apparent but the chart is probably lithographic due to late 19th century provenance. Number 3460. Price: two francs.
