Plan de la Baye d'Alicant

DESCRIPTION: This antique, black and white harbor chart /port plan of Alicante Bay, Spain is by Jacques Ayrouard (Marseilles ca. 1732- 1746) from a scarce atlas titled: "Recueil de Plusiers Plans des Ports et Rades et de Quelque Cartes Particulieres de la Mer Méditerranée". Coverage extends eastward from Cap St. Paul to past Cap de la Houerta. Engraved by Louis Corne. Plate 67.

Little information exists on Ayrouard's background but like Henry Michelot before him, Ayrouard was a pilot of the French royal galley, the Reale, based in Marseille. However, Ayrouard's port plans are very different from Michelot's earlier works. The much larger size (18"x11") and extensively shaded topography in this plan are distinctive characteristics of Ayrouard's nautical plans.
