The "Neptune Francois" was published in 1693, and its charts are larger and more lavishly decorated than those of any preceding book of its kind. The chart is without year, place and "par Ordre du Roi", pointing to a later issue, but issued from the original copperplate. It is also without "Imprimerie Royale" belonging to the imprints from 1792. Koeman IV,425:11.
