On the largest of these islands, Ile Sainte-Marguerite, the Man in the Iron Mask was held prisoner during 1687-1698. This antique chart of the area around Cannes is by Jacques Ayrouard (Marseilles ca. 1732- 1746) from a scarce atlas titled: "Recueil de Plusiers Plans des Ports et Rades et de Quelque Cartes Particulieres de la Mer Méditerranée". <BR> </BR> Interior areas shown with little structural detail, but do contain significant shading and hachuring to convey elevation details. Little information exists on Ayrouard's background but like Henry Michelot before him, Ayrouard was a pilot of the French royal galley, the Reale, based in Marseille. However, Ayrouard's port plans are very different from Michelot's earlier works. The much larger size (18"x11") and extensively shaded topography are distinctive characteristics of Ayrouard's charts. <BR> </BR> On chain-laid paper. Large compass rose with fleur-de-lis. Plate 13.

$600.00Ayrouard--JacquesAntique-plan-of-the-port-of-Cette--France-(Sete)Antique French Mediterranean port plan or chart for the town of <b>Sète, France</b> (Cette) in the southeast French region of Occitanie. This old port plan by Jacques Ayrouard (Marseilles ca. 1732- 1746) depicts the small port of Sète in 1733, likely on an earlier visit by Ayrouard. Of particular interest is that Sète is and was the Mediterranean terminus for the Canal Royal de Languedoc ( now the <b>Canal du Midi</b> ), opened in 1681. Shows the protective outer môle or jetty with a walkway and an inner jetty of rock. Wharves line docks where offshore sailing vessels would have had their cargos unloaded and trans-shipped through the canal in smaller shallow-draft barges. In the early 18th century French galleys may have traveled through the canal between their base in Marseilles and Bordeaux, St. Malo or Dunkirk. (Source: Chatelain, Henry.
