The much rarer and earlier of two charts of the Harbour of Cork published by the firm Mount and Page. It was replaced at the latest by another in 1759. This particular sea chart was first published by William Mount and Thomas Page from at least 1729 in the ‘English Pilot First Part, Southern Navigation’. It focuses entirely on the city of Cork and its approaches. The plan of the city is upper left but it today has spread far to the east beyond Spring Garden to the headland. There is unusually for a sea chart extensive topographical detail including numerous roads and outlying villages. The main road (E30) from Cork to Midleton is clearly depicted. There are extensive soundings in many harbours and inlets. Shirley ‘Atlases in the BL’ M.M&P 1b no. 14.
