Attractive original antique map of coastal Croatia, published in London by William Heather for his New Mediterranean Pilot. . . The map shows the cities on the western part of the Istrian Peninsula including Rovinj, Vrsar, and Porec. This area had recently been fully agglomerated into the Austrian Empire, with Venice previously holdings parts of the territory.
The charts from Heather's New Mediterranean Pilot . . . are extremely rare on the market. This is the first example of the chart we have ever seen.
