Marguerite et St. Honorat Fascinating and rare copper plate map published by Christophe Tassin in c.1634. The map details Ile Saint-Honorat, Ile de la Tradeliére and Ile Sainte-Marguerite which collectively compose the Lerin Islands off the French Riviera, near Cannes. Also shown in great detail is the coastline from Cannes up to the Cap de la Croix. One, if not the earliest, maps of this iconic piece of French coastline. Tassin's atlas is the first set of charts to focus exclusively on the coast of France, and is the earliest sea atlas published in France. Tassin's work enjoyed a long run of importance. Originally published by order of Cardinal Richelieu in 1634, Tassin would later sell the plates for his atlas to Antoine de Fer, who re-issued the atlas with some modifications. Antoine's son Nicolas De Fer would later re-issue the work with an addtional 10 plates and modification of the plates, in 1676, adding titles to the charts and adding a collection of fortifications. The charts were again re-issued by Pieter Mortier in 1695 and 1702. Condition ReportIn a very good condition. Printed on hand laid. Strong dark impression. Uncoloured.
