From ‘Great Britain’s Coasting Pilot’, the first English Sea Atlas based upon a systematic personal survey. The charts were first published in atlas form in 1693 and issued for a full century afterwards with some additions and corrections. This example is probably from an edition printed by Mount & Page.
