Pilotage of the British Channel From Scilly to the Downs (Channel Islands inclusive): in a series of Sectional Charts

London and Southampton, [1850]
Octavo (155 x 125 mm.), contemporary cloth binding with publisher’s title label affixed to upper board. With typographic title page, pp. 29, (3) and 15 charts on 10 plates, each on stiffer paper, 2 of which are double-page, generally in good condition.
In the Preface John Hay claimed 18 years experience of piloting the Channel in naval, revenue and private vessels. The plates were engraved and printed by Philip Brannon (1817-90), the son of George Brannon, best known for his published works on the Isle of Wight. The work provides charts of several key portions of the British coast on the British Channel and one of the Channel Islands. The double page charts are of the Needles off the Isle of Wight and one of the eastern half of the Solent and its approaches. Provenance: dedication copy from the author inscribed inside upper board.
