The First English Sea Chart of South America and Georgia.

Scarce early sea chart of the coast of Georgia and north Florida, which appeared in a few of the later editions of Mount & Page's English Pilot, Book 4.

A fine early coastal chart of South Carolina and Georgia, oriented with north to the left, depicting the Atlantic Coast from the Savannah ("Savanah Town"), Georgia to northern Florida. Several islands are named, including Amelia, etc. The chart includes an extensive set of sailing directions for the coasts of South Carolina, Georgia, and the waters off St. Augustine in Florida.

The chart was a significant improvement over the earlier Mount & Page chart of South Carolina, yet it only appeared in a few editions of the atlas and is scarce on the market, almost always appearing with some minor restorations or damage to the folds, owing to use at sea and the paper used by Mount & Page.

Condition Description
Right sheet only. Sometimes the chart appears with a sheet at the left extending it out to Charleston. Restoration to reinstatement of lost text at left side of text and small hole below "D" in Florida.
