SOLD

Balearic Islands Majorca and Mirorca from Spanish Government Surveys, 1890-5

DESCRIPTION: SOLD

Bold, authentic British sea chart of two of Spain's Balearic Islands: Majorca (Mallorca) and Minorca (Menorca). In excellent condition. Originally engraved and published in 1897 from London by the Admiralty under the superintendence of Rear Admiral W.J.L. Wharton. Lighthouses and other navigational aids are hand colored in yellow. This large chart will make a very attractive, unusual, and affordable gift for anyone with an interest in fishing or boating in the vicinity of Mallorca or Menorca in the Mediterranean Sea. Thousands of depth soundings, numerous bays, headlands, and villages pack this old pre-war nautical chart. Key habitations include Palma, Pollensa, Arta, Manacor, and Santany, Mallorca.

This version of the Balearic Island chart dates to 1930 when it was published with corrections. This bold dark lithographed print retains the sharp cartographic look and style of the late 19th century. More recent charts do not display the character of this beauty. Logo of the British Hydrographical Office at top of the title block. Number 1317. Sold by J. D. Potter, 145 Minories.
