MOUNT, W. & J. & PAGE, T.

A Chart of the Coasts of Ireland and Part of England

W & J Mount and T. Page at the Postern on Tower Hill, London, 1729-[49]
440 x 535 mm., light wax stains upper centre, some overall surface dirt, some light restoration to upper corners of the margin, otherwise in good condition.
An uncommon general sea chart of Ireland which was first published by William Mount and Thomas Page from at least 1729 in the ‘English Pilot First Part, Southern Navigation’. It extends to the east to include the coastlines of Scotland, most of Wales and a portion of south west England. All of the major ports and harbours are featured along the coasts, with as might be expected no inland details given. Soundings are shown along portions of the coast and much of England and Wales. Ireland at the time had not been properly surveyed but England and Wales was most likely derived from the work of Greenville Collins in 1693. A circle of compass roses and radiating lines surrounds the island. Shirley ‘Atlases in the BL’ M.M&P 1b no. 8.
