Antique harbor chart of Palma, Mallorca

DESCRIPTION: SOLD

Small and colorful mid 18th-century antique nautical chart of the harbor at Palma, Mallorca ( Majorca ), Spain. Coverage of this original copperplate-engraved harbor chart includes the walled village of Palma ( Palme ), the 'Tour de Lazaret' , Port Pin ( Porto Pi ), and the Vauban-style Fort de Port Pin. Several windmills are located as are soundings with suggested anchorages to aid early navigators unfamiliar with the area. Plate 8.

There were at least four small atlases of port and coastal charts that originated from Marseille hydrographers in the 18th century. Beginning in approximately 1727 these atlases included works by cartographers Michelot and Bremond, Jacques Ayrouard, Joseph Roux , and Jean Allezard. This small original chart is from the atlas of Mediterranean ports produced by Joseph Roux - "Recueil des Principaux Plans des Ports et Rades de la Mer Méditerranée".
