Description

Rare sea chart of Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and the contiguous part of Cape Cod from Nobska Point to Chatham New Harbor, published by S. Thaxter & Son in Boston and copyrighted by George Eldridge and A.C. Cushing in 1893.

The chart includes the stamp of Edward C. Lord, Ship Chandler, Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, who apparently also sold charts, anchors and other nautical equipment.

An exceptionally detailed chart, which includes some unusual red lining of a type we have not previously seen on any printed sea chart.

Shows towns, harbors, soundings, lighthouses, shoals, and a host of other details.

The chart is apparently scarce on the market, this being the first example we have ever seen.
