Description

Nice example of James Imray's large sea chart of the Philippine Islands, published in London in 1878.

The map treats the vast majority of the islands with fine detail, lacking only the northernmost part of Luzon and some of the southernmost islands.

At the right side, Imray includes a note discussing the ongoing survey "in progress" and that "the islands are very imperfectly known, shipmasters are enjoined to be more than usually careful when navigating among them."

 

Condition Description
Damstain at the lower left corner. Toned at left and right side of image, with minor foxing.
