A very attractive plan of the town of Lisbon with panorama of the town above with Belem. The chart is oriented to the east. A highly detailed chart of the harbour of Lisbon with soundings, anchorage’s, channels, shoals and navigational sightings. Beneath the title on the left is an inset plan of Lisbon town. The whole is decorated with rhumb lines and a rococo style cartouche. This chart is usually found to be published by the ‘Depot De La Marine’ in Paris with the stamp of the Depot lower right and price print outside the neatline. This example lacks either.
