TAVERNIER, Melchior. [Cardinal Richelieu and the Huguenots at Oleron]
Carte De la Coste de la Rochelle a Brouaige et de l'Isle d'Oleron Observee par le Sr. de Chattillon ingenieur du Roy. 1627. Paris, c.1632. Old colour. 400 x 520mm. Faint damp stain in lower border.
Oleron shown in detail, with an inset showing the route of an English fleet to La Rochelle. At the time of mapping the area was a stronghold of the Protestant Huguenots, under siege by the Catholic monarchy under the control of the infamous Cardinal Richelieu. In events forming the background to Alexandre Dumas's novel 'The Three Musketteers', Charles I of England sent the Duke of Buckingham and a fleet of 90 ships and 10,000 men to relieve La Rochelle. The expedition was a failure and the next year Richelieu took the town, causing the Huguenot diaspora to England and America. PASTEREAU: Tavernier IIa 39.
