Original Antique Print - Harbor Map of Bouc - France - Joseph Roux
Original copper engraving print originates from ”Recueil des Principaux Plans des Ports et Rades de la Mer Méditerranée …” by Joseph Roux of the edition of 1804. The charts are engraved rather coarsely, contain little nautical information and have different scales and orientation, due to the small size of the charts. They provide no geographical coordinates, have a central rose of eight or sixteen winds, and present typical features of the previous century, such as profiles of conspicuous buildings or villages, drawn in perspective within the coastline.
