The Balearic Islands of Majorca and Ibiza showing the nearby coast of Spain from Alicante to Tarragona. Pierre Antoine Tardieu (1784-1869) was a well-known engraver and mapmaker in Paris and part of an extensive family involved in the profession. He worked initially with his father Antoine Francois Tardieu (1757-1822), himself an established cartographer, before setting up on his own. He is credited with being the first mapmaker to engrave on steel. This map of the southeast was engraved for the ‘Atlas Universel’ published by Edme Mentelle and Pierre Gregoire Chanlaire, c.1800. The engraving is of a high standard typical of Tardieu and illustrates the region in detail. Refer Shirley (2004) T.Ment-2a; Tooley’s Dictionary (1999-2004).
