An impressive large sheet chart of the island of Madagascar. Numerous place names, soundings and sand banks are shown round the island and the regions are defined in original body colour. East to the top. Includes the islands of I. De Bourbon , Santa Apolonia , I. De Ioan de Lisboa and Isles de Comorre.
In lower left hand corner is an inset map of Bay St. Augustin. The regions are defined in original body colour.

From Mortier's Neptune François, one of the most spectacular cartographical works ever produced.
According to Koeman: ...the most expensive sea-atlas ever published in Amsterdam ... Its charts are larger and more lavishly decorated than those of any preceding book of this kind. For the engraving and etching Mortier had recruited the most qualified artists.
This magnificent work was intended more as a show piece than something to be used by pilots at sea. €
