Le petit Neptune françois ou Carte des côtes maritimes du Royaume avec une partie de celles d'Angleterre dans laquelle on voit les ports ou havres, les bayes, les rades, les sondes, les bancs de sable, les rochers, écueils, caps, etc. is a work by Giovanni Antonio Rizzi Zannoni ( 1736-1814 ). Zannoni began his career as a cartographer in 1753 in Poland , called by King Augustus III , where he made a map of the whole Poland. In 1756 he moved to Sweden and Denmark, where he was commissioned to measure Danish lands in Oldenburg and Delmenhorst. In 1757 he moved to Germany and during the Battle of Rossbach (5 December 1757), in which the Prussians , led by Frederick the Great prevailed over the French, he was taken prisoner by them and sent to Paris, where he remained for over twenty years.

There Zannoni met Ferdinando Galiani, secretary of the Neapolitan embassy, who convinced him to draw a map of the kingdom of Naples. Back in Padua in 1776, he conceived the project of a general map of Italy on astronomical - geodetic bases in 15 sheets ; the work could not be completed , however, and it was not completed but the Carta del Padovano co' suoi fondamenti (1780 ), because in the meantime he was called to Naples to review the paper of 176 . His work lasted three decades and led to the realization of the famous Geographic Atlas of the Kingdom of Naples in 32 large sheets , completed in 1812.
