Plan du Port St. Antoine sur l'ile de Lemnos.
Voyage Pittoresque de la Grece. Paris., 1782.. Copper engraving. Later colour. Good wide margins. Fine condition. Size: 21 x 34.5 cm. (8½ x 13½ inches). Plan of the port of St. Antoine on the island of Lemnos. Depth soundings. Ornamental cartouche. In 1776 Choiseul-Gouffier and the artist J.B. Hilaire joined a cartographic survey of the Mediterranean. Volume I of Voyage Pittoresque, his account of their tour of the Greek islands, the coast of Asia Minor, and of his travels on the mainland, was immediately acclaimed on publication in 1778. According to Brunet, it was incontestably the most beautiful production of this kind seen until then. Choiseul-Gouffier's work offered for the first time, illustrations of remote places that complemented the scrupulously researched narrative.
