One of the rarer of the general sea charts of the British Isles. It was first published by Richard and William Mount and Thomas Page in the ‘English Pilot First Part, Southern Navigation’ in 1715. It extends to the north to include the Orkney Islands. 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 virtually the entire coast of England and Wales with the notable exception of the coast from Flamborough Head north and the north Cornish coast. The Scottish coast is only represented near the Firth of Forth, just to its north and the Orkneys. Shirley (1988) Mount and Page 4; Shirley ‘Atlases in the BL’ M.M&P 9a no. 1.
