Description :Bellinís map of the port of Vera Cruz, Mexico which appeared in Prevost's "L'Histoire Generale des Voyages". This detailed map shows the Port of Vera Cruz in Mexico in the middle of the 18th century.
Founded in the 1500s by Hernan Cortes, the city became one of the wealthiest cities in New Spain. On this small map, however, the city's appearance in the lower left corner makes it secondary to the islands off the coast that are the chart's main focus.
The complex of fortresses at San Juan de Ulua are contextualized among soundings and shoals, providing useful information for sailors heading toward this base of Spanish operations. A small numbered legend details the locations of other significant buildings, including the Grand Eglise, the House of the Jesuits, and the office of the Inquisition.
The cartographer Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) was one of the most important and proficient French cartographers of the eighteenth century. He was appointed the first Ingenieur Hydrographe de la Marine, and also the Official Hydrographer to the French King.
Condition : In very nice condition, good margins, although lower left border is shortened. Good impression. May have been cleaned.
