Highly detailed, engraved port plan of Antibes, France on the French Riviera or Cote d'Azur, based on information that was current as of 1720. Highlighted by a colored compass rose oriented with north to bottom right, this old antique chart / plan shows Antibes surrounded by Vauban-style defensive walls. Key noted features include "le Chateau", land and sea entrances (ports), le mole or jetty, the Fort d'Antibes and a beach leading to Nice - "Plage qui conduit a Nice."

Numerous soundings, underwater hazards, and anchorages are noted in and near Antibes harbor. This nautical chart was produced in 1727 by French hydrographers and galley (galère, Fr.) pilot Henry Michelot and Laurens Bremond
