Lot Details

Lot 152
DES BARRES, JOSEPH FREDERICK WALLET The North East Shore of the Gulph of Mexico.
London: circa 1780. A very large hand-colored engraved map on four joined sheets. Overall 30 x 84 inches (76 x 214 cm). The verso silked closing some tears, one small puncture in the image above the word North in the title, other abrasions and wear along folds, light spotting, trimmed close along bottom edge costing some of the thin border, worthy of conservation, sold with all faults.

A scarce and monumental map of the north east gulf coast from Des Barres' Atlantic Neptune, showing the area from about current day Mobile Bay, Alabama eastward to Apalachicola, Florida. The circa 1780 Atlantic Neptune, remarkable for its accuracy and great beauty, was used extensively by the Royal Navy during the American Revolution. The lands shown here are uninhabited save small settlements at Pensacola and a small village named Campbell Town. We trace few examples of this fine chart at auction.
