Incisione in rame di mm 470x630, colorata a mano. Alexander Thomas Emeric Vidal (1792 – 1863) fu un ufficiale della marina reale inglese, nella quale raggiunse il ruolo di vice ammiraglio; fu per lunghi anni addetto alle misurazioni delle coste africane, Nel 1838 il segretario della Royal Geographical Society disse di lui: “This tedious undertaking is drawing to a close, and will then be of equal utility to the fair traders and the anti-slavery cruisers. It is fortunately in the hands of such a man as Captain Vidal, R.N., who has steadily devoted himself during a long period of ill-health, to complete this unpopular work, and to connect with it a minute examination of the Canary Islands”. Buon esemplare con restauri ai margini e a piccoli fori nella battuta. Lievi difetti superficiali.
