Ibiza and Formentera Spain

DESCRIPTION: Antique engraved nautical chart of the harbor and town of Yvice ( Ibiza ) on the island of Ibiza, Spain. Coverage includes nearby Formentera ( Fromentiere ) Island.

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".

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.

Comparison between Roux's chart and that of Michelot and Bremond shows that Roux copied Michelot's topography, anchorages, place names, and soundings directly from Michelot's chart that had been produced 40 years earlier. Plate 7.
