1721 FRENCH NAUTICAL MAP CASPIAN SEA AMAZING DETAIL
1721 FRENCH NAUTICAL MAP CASPIAN SEA AMAZING DETAIL
This is a large and extraordinarily detailed French nautical map of the Caspian Sea. The attention detail on this one is absolutely amazing; depth soundings for the entire sea cover the map, 1721.

The map was produced by the cartographer, Guillaume Del'Isle for the Academy of Science in Paris. Del'Isle is probably most famous for first showing that California was not an island, as shown on previous maps.

Title and description on map: Carte marine de la Mer Caspiene. Levee suivant les ordres de S.M. Czariene, Par Mr. Carl Vanverden en 1719, 1720 et 1721. Et reduite au meridien de Paris par Guillaume Delisle, Premier Geographe du Roy, de l'Academie Royale des Sciences. A Paris, Chez le Sr. Delisle, Quay de l'horloge, avec Privilege du Roy.
