Description:

Rare, French sea chart of the Gulf of Siam, by one of the leading mapmakers of the 18th century. Extends from the Mekong in the north and to the Isle of Tioman (near the tip of the Malaysian Peninsula in the south). An inset at lower left is an enlarged section of the coast, from Ridang Island to Pakango River.

Jean-Baptiste de Mannevillette (1707 - 1780)

Mannevillette was a French mapmaker who had studied under the royal cartographer Guillaume de L’Isle and was one of the first to use the method of measuring distances from the sun and moon to determine latitude. He took part in numerous voyages to the East and was made director of the Depot des Cartes et Plans de la Navigation des Indes. All French ships navigating the Indian Ocean used these charts and as a consequence of this on board use, many are found in poor and damaged condition. References: Moreland p.134
