Antique Sea Chart

THE RIVER HUMBER

by Greenvile Collins (also Greenville)

Published London 1756 by Mount & Page.

An original 18th century copper engraved antique sea chart of the Humber Estuary, England.

Covers Kingston upon Hull, Grimsby, Paull, Ottringham, Patrington, Barton upon Humber etc. Sunk island is actually an island proper before silting and land reclamation joined it to the mainland.

Enhanced with attractive later hand colouring this would make a handsome map for display.

From Greenville Collins' "Great Britain's Coasting Pilot" published by Mount and Page in 1756

A fascinating and detailed sea chart with the title displayed in an elaborate cartouche featuring putti, Neptune and a coat of arms. The chart is dedicated by Collins to Trinity House at Kingston upon Hull.

The detail includes soundings, anchorages, shoals and rocks as well as settlements ashore, including individual buildings. 

A crisp dark impression on robust hand laid paper, with central fold as issued, blank verso.

Fine condition other than some light staining as seen. Free of repairs or restoration.

Approx. 24" x 20.5" (640mm x 520mm) overall. Printed area approx. 22.5" x 17.5" (570mm x 450mm).

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.
