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, have a central rose of eight or sixteen winds, and present typical features of the previous century, such as profiles of conspicuous buildings or villages, drawn in perspective within the coastline. Joseph Roux was born in 1725 in Marseille, France to Joseph Roux, who worked as a hydrographer, and Magdaleine Senequier. ####x201D; It was probably around the mid-18th century when Joseph earned the title of ####x201C;Hydrographe du Roi####x201D; meaning Hydrographer to the King. In 1764, Joseph published a folio of twelve Mediterranean charts which were used for a number of years after their publication.
Copies were even used on HMS Victory in 1803 and 1805, as well as on HMS Shannon. Joseph was also known to paint, though not as frequently as his son or grandchildren. Two such works, oil paintings titled Bonhomme Richard vs Serapis and Naval Engagement between a British East Indiaman and a French Warship, exist at the Peabody Essex Museum and showcase Joseph's skill as a painter. Joseph died in 1793 in Marseille.
