Mount Vesuvius or Monte Vesuvio is a volcano on the Bay of Naples Italy

Copper engraving by Joseph Roux  

Published in Roux's :Recueil des principaux plans des Ports et Rades de la Mer Mediterranee escraits …

In 1764, Roux had released an album titled Recueil des Principaux Plans des Ports et Rades de la Mer Méditerranée ..., inclusive of 121 harbor plans, with neither explanatory text nor captions. The charts are engraved rather coarsely, contain little nautical information and have different scales and orientation, due to the small size of the charts. They provide no geographical coordinates.
