Item Information

Title:
A new suruey of the harbour of Boston in New England
Title (alt.):
New survey of the harbour of Boston in New England
Description:
This chart of Boston Harbor is a rare Irish printing that was pirated from the anonymous English chart that first appeared in Mount and Page's 1707 edition of The English Pilot, The Fourth Book, as well as their 1708 edition of Atlas Maritimus Novus. However, this chart was re-engraved and printed from a separate copper plate. Although at the time, this survey was over forty years old, it continued to function as the most accurate printed chart of Boston Harbor.
