Description :Map of the Royal Canal, or Canal du Midi, in Southern France by Vincenzo Coronelli.
The beautiful, decorative title cartouche is flanked by the coat of arms for the Languedoc region, and the French royal coat of arms. A fantastic illustrated additional cartouche in the lower left corner is titled "Disegno Idrografico del Canale Reale." The original purpose of the Canal du Midi, ordered by Louis XIV in 1666, was to be a shortcut for France between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, avoiding the long sea voyage around hostile Spain, Barbary pirates, and a trip that in the 17th century required a full month of sailing. Toulouse, the city where the canal begins, can be seen at the top left. A large key identifying all of the ports along the canal covers the top portion of the page.
Coronelli was both a cleric and an encyclopedist, with a particular interest in geography and cartography. In 1681 Coronelli served as Royal Cartographer to King Louis XIV in Paris, gaining special access to the most current records on world geography sent in from the colonies, and provided by the French Academy of Sciences. Coronelli returned to Venice in 1684 and founded the Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, a geographical society with membership drawn from the aristocracy and church hierarchy, and a year later he was appointed Cosmographer to the Republic of Venice.

Condition : Excellent condition. Map appears to have been trimmed on right and left margins.
