Article description

Article description

Copper engraving. Published in an atlas volume of Nicolaus Bellin's ,Histoire generale des Voyages' around 1760 in Paris. French edition. A small decorative map of the Island of Celebes with many engraved place names, rivers and mountains and small islands along the coast. The individual parts of Celebes are as well named and partly different colored. A detailled and interesting map engraved by Bellin after earlier voyages. Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703 – 21 March 1772) was a French hydrographer, geographer, and member of the French intellectual group called the philosophes. Bellin was born in Paris. He was hydrographer of France's hydrographic office, member of the Académie de Marine and of the Royal Society of London. Over a 50-year career, he produced a large number of maps of particular interest to the Ministère de la Marine. His maps of Canada and of French territories in North America (New France, Acadia, Louisiana) are particularly valuable. He died at Versailles.
