    The Mount & Page English Pilot atlases form a complex series, many of the charts being derived from Seller. According to Shirley, however, this chart first appears in the 1729 edition of Part 1, the Southern Navigation, and by 1743 (the next example of this atlas in the BL) the plate had the added inset: A plan of Holy Island and the Staples.
