Price: £324.00

TITLE/CONTENT OF MAP: Chart of the North Atlantic Ocean [and Gulf Stream] with tracks of the shipping to West Indies, North America &c.

A large and fascinating chart of the North Atlantic Ocean, showing the trade shipping routes according to the trade winds, and a number of other interesting features. The route of Nelson to the West Indies in pursuit of the French in 1805 is shown, as is the track of the USS Insurgent (originally the French frigate Insurgente). There are numerous observations of rocks and possible shoals. The track of the "Gulf Stream according to Governor Pownall" is shown running up the east coast of north America before erroneously turning south towards the Canary Islands.
