This fine rare sea chart of the Aegean Sea was first published in Mount & Page’s ‘English Pilot Part Three’ in 1716. Engraved by Samuel Parker this example is from the 1747 edition. Dotted or ‘Prickt Lines shows The best Passage up the Arches’. The ‘Arches’ were the colloquial name for the Archipelago. There is a fascinating depiction of Sentorim (Santorini) with a nearby ‘Burning I’ showing an erupting volcano. This reflects the active eruptive period of Santorini between 23 May 1707 and 14 September 1711.
