A large draught of New England, New York and Long Island

Item Information

Title:
A large draught of New England, New York and Long Island
Description:
The 1749 pirated Dublin edition of The English Pilot, The Fourth Book included these two relatively rare charts showing the New England coast. Although the charts in the Dublin edition resemble those in the London edition of The English Pilot, they were entirely re-engraved. The chart displayed here focuses on the New England coast from the Hudson River to the Penobscot River. It also includes an inset of Boston Harbor. The other chart, which was drawn at a smaller scale, delineates the entire northeastern coast from the Chesapeake Bay north to the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and Newfoundland.
