Antique nautical plan of Venice, Italy and lagoons

Lagunes de Venise

DESCRIPTION: Antique harbor plan of Venice, Italy and its nearby islands, canals, and villages. The copperplate-engraved map extends from Chioggia ( "Chiozza" ) in the south past the islands of Lido and Malamocco. Venice is shown as an archipelago of about 30 inhabited islands in the center of the lagoon. Some of the noted towns and villages surrounding Venice include Ville Franche, Termine, Palestrina, Bolta, St. Ange, St. George, Muran ( Murano ), Vignole, Neuveau Lazaret, and St. Francis du Desert. Soundings and navigational aids are absent from this small nautical chart. The primary man-made feature of note is the hospital at the east of Venice.

One of 163 plates of ports on the Mediterranean, Adriatic and Black seas from Allezard's atlas "Recueil de 163 des principaux plans des ports et rades de la Mediterranée, dont 40 ont été derniérement publiés par Jean Joseph Allezard ancien capitaine de marine et plusieurs des autres corrigés" . This atlas was a re-issue of Joseph Roux's atlas published from Marseille in several editions beginning in 1764. Published by Joseph Gamba from Livorno, Italy. Plate 81.
