DESCRIPTION

The 1749 pirated Dublin edition of ''The English Pilot, The Fourth Book'' included two relatively rare charts showing the New England coast.

Although the charts in the Dublin edition resemble those in the London edition of ''The English Pilot'', they were entirely re-engraved.

The chart displayed here shows the entire northeastern coast line from the Chesapeake Bay north to the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and Newfoundland. The other chart, which was drawn at a larger scale, focuses on just the New England coast line from the Hudson River to the Penobscot River.
