DESCRIPTION

Heather, a London engraver and chart maker, published this two-sheet chart of the American coast, along with his Pilot for the Atlantic Ocean, at the end of the 18th century. The chart displays detailed coastal topography, depth soundings, and tidal and current information from Virginia to Maine.

Its most attractive features are the elaborate calligraphy displayed in the title and the fine series of insets depicting New York Harbor, the Delaware River and Bay, and Boston Bay.
