This appears to be after 'Marseille, Vue de l'interieur du Port', one of three Garneray aquatints of Marseilles published before 1849. Another looks into the harbour in the opposite direction from a higher point to the east. The third is titled 'Vue de la ville et du port de Marseille prise de l’hôtel de Ville'. Only reproductions of the first two have yet been seen but an original of the last is also lettered 'Garneray pinx et sculp. / A Paris chez BASSET rue St Jacques N°64'which suggests all were also engraved by Garneray while the Basset family of print publishers were reportedly at that address to 1849. Two apparently earlier and similar Garneray versions, with differing details, of the present view and that from the Hotel de Ville side of harbour, appeared as small steel plates in part III (1832) of his 'Recueil des vues des côtes de France dans l’Océan et dans la Méditerranée' (Paris, 1823-32).
