DESCRIPTION

This is perhaps the most meticulously detailed chart of the New England coast produced during the last decades of the eighteenth century. It shows a series of coastal elevations and numerous soundings, as well as currents, tides, shoals, capes, bays, and harbors.

Captain Nathaniel Holland was a highly regarded chart maker producing numerous charts of the eastern coast of North America. Many of these were published by the London firm of Laurie and Whittle, including this chart which appeared in the 1795 edition of their North American Pilot.
