Bellin's superb North Atlantic sea chart for the Histoire Generale des Voyages, reengraved by vander Shley for the Dutch edition of the influential collection of travel narratives. The chart encompasses parts of four continents—Europe, Africa, North and South America—and all of the Caribbean islands, and is crisscrossed by rhumb lines radiating out from the central compass rose. The west African bulge is dominated by the exquisite title cartouche. A beautifully detailed and engraved chart, in a very well preserved exemplar.
