Sounding chart of the headwaters of the River Plate, with soundings of the approaches to Montevideo.

The map was produced by the French navy and published by the Dépôt Général de la Marine. Like the Admiralty Office in London, the Dépôt served both as a depository for marine charts and a publishing firm. The intention was to provide accurate and up-to-date charts for the use of the navy and merchant marine.

The present example is remarkable for its detail and finesse of execution.
