Roux, Joseph
$125.00Roux--JosephRoux-antique-plan-of-Vis-(Lucca)-harbor-in-CroatiaAttractive, antique nautical chart / port plan of the town and harbor on the island of Vis, Croatia, ("Lissa") off the Dalmatian Coast, in the Adriatic Sea. Vis is furthest island in the Adriatic from the Croatian coast and lies southwest of the islands of Hvar, Brac and Solta. <BR> </BR> The port of Vis is identified by Roux as "Lucca". Other key features on this port plan include "Cut", "St. Spilice", "Calle St. George", "Calle Stance", and "Pointe Argentine". On the small and high offshore island of Otočić Host, Roux notes a "Reconnaissance pour le Mouillage" or a place to view the anchorage at Vis. <BR> </BR> For many years Vis was the military and naval headquarters of Tito’s partisan army and was closed to the public until 1989. This meant that it largely escaped commercial development and has been able to retain its natural beauty. Plate 85. <BR> </BR> Joseph Roux Sr. (1725-1793) was a French cartographer and hydrographer who lived in Marseille. The Roux family, with Roux's son Jospeh Jr. and grandson Antoine Roux, was involved in marine cartography and marine painting from Marseille into the mid-19th century.
