Captain Greenville Collins first published his Coasting Pilot in 1693. 
His fine charts transformed navigation around the British coasts and were re-published in various editions for the next 100 years or so. 
They remained largely unchanged throughout this time as testament to Collins original surveys aboard HMS Merlin and HMS Monmouth.
