DESCRIPTION

One of the last of the 18th-century nautical surveys of Boston Harbor, this chart contains many aids to navigation, including soundings, sailing marks, and other directions.

The atlas from which it is taken was first published in 1775 by London publishers Robert Sayer and John Bennett. The atlas was later expanded by their assistants and successors Robert Laurie and James Whittle to include this and other charts. It was one of the three successful marine atlases published in England to replace the obsolete The English Pilot.
