<mods:identifier type='local-call'>G1106.P5 D47 1777</mods:identifier><mods:abstract>This grouping of eight headland views paints a striking picture of the Nova Scotia coast, east of Halifax. Covering a geographic area from Beaver Harbour northeast to Milford Haven (a distance of 160 miles), these coastal profiles served a utilitarian purpose for mariners navigating the complicated Nova Scotia coastline. Artistic elements such as foreboding skies and ships mooring in the port were added for aesthetic appeal; however, the coastal representations themselves were provided for navigational purposes. These views are a major advance over the earlier, unsophisticated headland views available to navigators in such works as the English Pilot.</mods:abstract><mods:identifier type='local-other'>06_01_008283</mods:identifier></mods:mods>
