Full title: 'Carte Nouvelle des Costes d'Angleterre depuis la Rivière de la Tamise jusques à Portland, & des Isles Voisines ou lon voit tous les Ports de Mer, Blanc de Sable & Rochers, a L'Usage des Armées de sa Majesté Britannique', by Romeyn de Hooghe, published in Amsterdam by Pierre Mortier, in 1693.
Top left is a superb large cartouche by De Hooghe with 16 symbolic figures, mythical gods, and in the middle the crowned coat-of-arms of William of Orange, King of England (=the Dutch stadhouder Willem III) with his motto 'Je Maintiendrai' and a dedication to him by 'Romanus de Hooghe'.
At either side views of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight (left), and Rochester and Chatham. The inset bottom right also by De Hooghe shows in a beautiful ornamental frame the Strait of Dover / Pas de Calais and the continental coast from Ostende to Calais. Several compass roses, many rhumb lines, sailing ships, a sea-battle is depicted south of the Isle of Wight.
This is one of a group of 9 charts which Romeyn de Hooghe executed for King William III and were published by Mortier, and which are widely regarded as the most decorative sea charts of the 17th Century.
