Single sheet. Col. ms. Scale: North at 156 degrees. Ungraduated map. Scale in Florentine braccia. Additional Places: Elba. Contents Note: Bobbin-shaped symbols denote triangulation points. The boundary of the Piombino territory is marked. Fortifications, cultivation, roads, street-plans and some houses, including the Villa dei Molini, in which Napoleon was to live in exile in 1814-15, are shown. Inscribed 'Pianta della giurisdizione di Portoferraio come vedesi indicata dagli accennati termini confinanti al territorio del principe de Piombino'. Nelson captured Portoferraio in 1795 and it formed an important forward base for St Vincent's fleet. Britain withdrew from the Mediterranean when Spain came into the war in 1796 but left an army at Portoferraio which Nelson was later sent to evacuate.
