Navigating The Northeastern Seaboard

Detailed coastal chart of the Northeastern part of the United States and part of Canada, reduced from Cyprian Southack's seminal 8 sheet chart that made up The New England Coasting Pilot, one of New England's most knowledgeable and experienced pilots.

The map is based on Southack's unobtainable The New England coasting pilot (circa 1729), which included a massive 8-sheet plan of New England from Sandy Hook to Nova Scotia. This iteration was included in Mount & Page's The English Pilot, The Fourth Book, from xxx to XX.

Mount & Page's The English Pilot, The Fourth Book, was the published for over a century and defined American sea chart compilations until the mid-18th century.

Southack (1662-1745) was one the foremost early mapmakers in America. His most famous map was the first map engraved on copper in the American colonies, A New Chart of the English Empire in North America (1717). That map is completely unobtainable.

Baynton-Williams ‘The Charting of New England’ no. 82; Le Gear ‘The New England Coasting Pilot of Cyprian Southack’ in Imago Mundi no. 11 pp. 137-44; McCorkle 735.1; Sellers & Van Ee 204.
