  <mods:abstract>In addition to containing meticulously prepared and scientifically derived charts, The Atlantic Neptune is a truly beautiful work, incorporating aesthetically pleasing design elements throughout its pages. From the very first page, the reader is astonished by the elaborate and ornamental calligraphy work of T. Tomkins, as seen in this 1777 title sheet for volume one. Popular in the 18th century, this handwriting executed in the decorative Rococo style, is a prelude to other artistically arranged design elements that appear in the charts and views.</mods:abstract>
