Mannevillette, d'Apres


Nautical chart of the Nicobar Islands Indian Ocean

Carte des Isles Nicobar

DESCRIPTION: Original engraved sea chart of the Nicobar Island Archipelago in the Bay of Bengal. Islands in the Nicobar Archipelago include Car Nicobar, Battimalym, Chowra, Great Nicobar, Little Nicobar, Katchal, Nancowry, and more. In 2013 UNESCO declared 85% of Great Nicobar Island, the largest, as the Great Nicobar Biosphere Reserve.

Manvillette's chart Includes an inset plan of the channel between the islands of Camorta, Nancowry, and Trincut which would have provided a harbor from storms but where navigation without the chart would have been dangerous: "Plan Particulier du Port Compris entre les Isles Nancaueri, Souri, et Tricutte."

This fine hand-colored nautical chart is from J. B. d'Apres de Mannevillette's sea atlas "Le Neptune Oriental ou routier general des Cotes des Indes orientales et de la Chine." Jean-Baptiste d'Après de Mannevillette (1707 - 1780) was a French sailor, navigator, and hydrographer active in the mid-18th century. Mannevillette studied mathematics and navigation in Paris before winning a commission as an officer on a merchant vessel headed for the West Indies. Mannevillette collected and revised a number of regional nautical charts during numerous voyages around Africa to India and China.
