Published circa 1750

An original 18th century copper engraved antique sea chart of Burlington Bay, now Bridlington, Scarborough and Hartlepool .

From Greenville Collins' "Great Britain's Coasting Pilot".

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

An elaborate title cartouche includes a dedication from Collins to Captain Ralph Sanderson.

The coverage includes Bridlington, Scarborough, Hartlepool, Flamborough Head, Hornsea, Sewerby (Shursbey) with north orientated to the right.

The detail includes soundings, shoals, rocks and anchorages 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 age soiling as seen and a few nicks to the extremities.

Approx. 23" x 20" (590mm x 500mm) overall. Printed area approx. 22" x 17" (560mm x 440mm).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.
