$ 1,250
  • Description
    A 17th century two-sheet map of the Mediterranean.
    JAILLOT, Alexis-Hubert.
    La Mer Mediterranée...
    Amsterdam, Pierre Mortier, c.1705. Original colour. Two sheets conjoined, total 575 x 850mm.

    Sanson's map of the Mediterranean was redrawn on a larger scale by Jaillot at the request of Sanson's heirs and originally published in the 'Atlas Nouveau'. However Jaillot seems to have fallen out with his associates and entered a partnership with Pierre Mortier in Amsterdam, who re-engravd the plates and published a pirate edition, without the approval of Sanson's heirs.
