PIANO DI NIZZA

£360

Rare 1797 manuscript map of Nice, with the French navy attacking from the sea.

Unknown author, Italian, but map attributed to an original, probably broadsheet map by Mollieras (?). Good plan of layout of Nice and the port and coast as was in 1797. Ships perhaps a trifle niave.

The sheet is watermarked with the initials JH & Z, for Jan Honig and Zoonen, a firm of papermakers operating in Zaandijk, north of Amsterdam operating during the eighteenth century.

Margins a little scruffy, Map good

A rare piece of history in manuscript form

This attack is not covered by any other antique maps or prints.
