D’APRES DE MANNEVILLETTE, Jean Baptiste P. D.

Carte de la Cote de Pegou et de Celle de Martaban

Paris, 1775
340 x 485 mm., in good condition.
A nice detailed chart of the coast of Burma. The material collected for ‘Le Neptune Oriental’ was approved by the French Compagnie des Indes. D’Apres de Mannevillette was one of the first Hydrographers of France and an accomplished navigator. Born in Le Havre to a captain in the French West India Company he made a voyage to the Caribbean in 1726. He showed an early interest in navigation and was one of the first Frenchmen to use Hadley’s quadrant and was later in life a friend of Dalrymple. Upon the atlas’ publication it was highly commended by everyone. Updated at various times after initial publication in 1745 it was expanded considerably in 1775. NMM 204 no. 52; Shirley M.Apr 1c.
