„Novissima et Accuratissima Canalis inter Angliae et Galliae Tabula cum omnibus suis Portibus Arenis et Profundis..."

Copper etching by Theodor Danckerts (1633-1727). Original hand coloring.

Published in Amsterdam, ca. 1695

Sea chart of the British Channel. Portolan showing in detail Southern coastline of Great Britain as well as coastlines of Belgium and France (Normandie and Bretagne (Brittany). Shallows and depths are marked as well as sea battles (1666 - Four Day Battle - 1690 Beachy Head - 1692 Barfleur)

Very nice original outline hand coloring. Pleasant title cartouche in original hand coloring.

Margins all around have been added. The paper used for the margins is 17th century paper.

There is a vertical crease running around Bristol to Quimperlay in the Britagne. There is some very minor creasing here and there on the map, but hardly visible and to be considered as patina on a more than 300 year map. Interesting is the portolan approach and the unusual portolan image and the quite unusual section shown, with the detailed south coast of England and the equally detailed coast and hinterland of Normandy and Britagne. What makes this map so intriguingly fascinating is the playful and very handsomely hand colored title cartouche with Francia (Gallia, later on, after the French Revolution: Marianne) and four cherubs, two of them winged, holding a rod of Asclepius, a shield, and two of them each with a cornucopia.
