Carte réduite de la Riviére de la Plata depuis les Caps Sainte Marie et Saint Antoine jusqu'aux Iles de Hornos et Buenos-Ayres
Dépôt Général de la Marine, Paris 1833 - Engraved map, two conjoined sheets measuring 655 x 988 mm. in total, fine condition. Sounding chart for the River Plate. Sounding chart of the headwaters of the River Plate, with soundings of the approaches to Montevideo. The map was produced by the French navy and published by the Dépôt Général de la Marine. Like the Admiralty Office in London, the Dépôt served both as a depository for marine charts and a publishing firm. The intention was to provide accurate and up-to-date charts for the use of the navy and merchant marine. The present example is remarkable for its detail and finesse of execution.
