Antique map, titled:”A Chart of the Atlantick Ocean Shewing the Coast from ye Texel to C. Cantin with England Ireland and the Western Islands.’ – Sea chart of the Atlantic Ocean, with West Europe from the Netherlands to Spain, and a small part of the North African coast. This includes England and Ireland. The prominently featured Western Islands are the Azores Islands. With two compass roses and rhumb lines. Numerous coastal towns are indicated. From “Atlas maritimus & commercialis: or, a General View of the World, so far as Relates to Trade & Navigation”, London: J. Knapton, et al, 1728. This very rare work was a collaborative effort of a number of the leading cartographic and scientific names of the period, including Sir Edmund Halley, John Senex, Nathaniel Cutler, Steven Parker and Daniel Defoe, whose names are frequently associated with this work. The sea atlas was developed by Senex and Harris to compete with Mount & Pageâs wildly popular English Pilot sea series, but did not come to much fruitition and as such the maps are scarse. Artists and Engravers: Made by an anonymous engraver after’Cutler & Halley’. Condition: Very good, given age. Original middle fold, as issued. Some faint offsetting where the map was folded on itself. A little soiling in the middle fold. A small crease in the top right margin corner. Some scattered small stains in the margins. Please study scan carefully. Keywords: ANTIQUE MAP-SEA CHART-WEST EUROPE-AZORES-ENGLAND-FRANCE-SENEX-KNAPTON (PCO) GK-255.
