War of 1812 Chart of Maine / Penobscot Bay - Mount Desert Island - Bangor
Fine example of John Luffman's rare chart of the area around Penobscot Bay to Mount Desert Island and Bangor, drawn from British naval sources during the War of 1812.
The text at the bottom notes:

Maps by John Luffman are very scarce on the market, this being the first time we have had this one.
