Rare American Published Sea Chart

Detailed sea chart of Maritime and Eastern Canada and New England, published in New York by Blunt.

The map extends inland to Quebec and south to Buzzard's Bay and New Bedford.  Includes a large inset of Cape Cod and an large inset of the Gut of Canso, Chedabuctou Bay, etc.

The inset of Cape Cod Harbour notes that is is based upon the US Surveys undertaken by Major J.D. Graham of the US Topographical Engineers in 1833, 1834 and 1835, with details on tides, soundings, etc.

A good example of this classic working sea chart.
