Jakob van der Schley & Jacques Nicolas Bellin

'Carte Reduite De La Partie La Plus Meridionale de L'Amerique . . . Gereduceerde Kaart van het Zuidelykstre Deel van America . . .'

Pubished in Amsterdam, 1757

Domensions: 23.5 x 17.5cm, 9.25 x 7 inches

Finely detailed map of the Straits of Magellan, Patagonia and the southern part of the Andes, etc.

Only a portion of the Malvinas (Falkland Islands) is charted in this map.

The map is drawn from a map produced by Jacques-Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772), France's pre-eminent maritime cartographer and the Premier Ingénieur of the Depot de la Marine (the French Hydrographical Office), as well as the Official Hydrographer of the King Louis XV.

Jakob van der Schley was a skilled draftsman and engraver who operated out of Amsterdam and had strong ties with the Hague. He was trained by Bernard Picart and his style resembles that of the elder man. Van der Schely was known for intricately engraved portraits and frontispieces. He signed most of the plates used in the Hague edition of the Abbe Prevost's Histoire generale des voyages.
