DESCRIPTION: Title page to "Recueil de Plusieurs Plans des Ports et Rades de la Mer Mediterranee", Henry Michelot and Laurens Bremond's quarto-sized atlas of Mediterranean ports and harbors published between 1727 and 1730. This elaborately engraved title page is very rarely found alone, usually only as one of the 38 plates in a copy of the complete Michelot and Bremond atlas.

Interesting note is that on the bottom neat line, previously engraved wording has been hastily covered over before printing, with just top and bottom of characters still visible.
