The much sought after map of Anacapa Island in the Channel Islands, which includes Whistler's engraving of the View of the Eastern Extremity of the Island. This item is distinguished as the first appearance in print of James Whistler. It is not generally known that after failing at West Point, Whistler went to work very briefly for the US Coast Survey. Fortunately for the art world, his work was considered too artsy! A significant bit of historical Americana.
