HARWICH,

Woodbridg and Handfordwater

With the sands from Nazeland to Hoseley Bay

by Greenville Collins

Published circa 1750

An original 18th century copper engraved antique sea chart of the Essex and Suffolk coastlines around Harwich and present day Felixtowe.

Covers Harwich and the Hamford Water National Nature Reserve (as Handfordwater) and Ramsey areas of Essex.

The Suffolk coast includes Shotley Gate, Bawdsey (Balsey), Alderton, Erwarton (Arwerton) and Landguard Fort marks the position of the present day Felixtowe Port.

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

The chart is dated as originally engraved in 1686, predating publication of the Coasting Pilot, so presumably one of the earlier charts to be drawn up.

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

A fascinating and detailed sea chart with north orientated to the right.

An elaborate title cartouche includes a sea battle scene and a dedication from Collins to Samuel Pepys.

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 faint patchy age toning as seen, free of repairs or restoration.

Approx. 25" x 20.5" (640mm x 520mm) overall. Printed area approx. 22" x 17.5" (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.
