This beautifully engraved sea chart was issued undoubtedly to accompany Jacque Nicolas Bellin’s ‘Hydrographie Francoise’. Bellin is most noted for his excellent contribution to marine cartography. This example focuses on the Dutch settlements in Southe America and includes a large inset map of the region of Cayenne.
