A scarce 18th century English chart of the Mediterranean on two sheets.

PRICE, Charles.

A Correct Chart of the Mediterranean Sea from the Coast of Portugal to the Levant.
London: William Mount & Thomas Page, c.1745. Coloured. Two sheets joined, total 475 x 1145mm.

A few small repairs.

Very scarce chart of the Mediterranean, with insets of Civitavecchia, Scanderoon (the port of Aleppo), Leghorne (Livorno) and 'the Port of Neptune or Naton' (Nettuno, south of Rome).
It was prepared by Price for his sea-atlas of the world, but production of the atlas was curtailed by his bankruptcy, for which he was incarcerated in Fleet Prison on Christmas Day 1731. The plates for his maps and atlases passed to the London publishers Mount and Page; this state bears the joint imprint of William Mount and Thomas Page, who ran the business between 1734 and 1745.
