9781472944900: Sea Charts of the British Isles

Traveling along the British coastline, Sea Charts of the British Isles showcases a beautiful collection of charts containing a wealth of information about Britain's maritime history and the story of charting and surveying itself. The great names in British chart-making are all included, such as Captain Greenvile Collins, Professor Murdoch Mackenzie and his nephew of the same name, Graeme Spence, and William Bligh, who between them created the first structured attempts to survey and chart particular areas of the coast of mainland Britain as well as the more remote islands.

Examples include several from Collins' “Great Britain's Coastal Pilot,” such as charts of Edinburgh and the Forth, the Orkney Islands, the coast of Ireland and the River Thames; the Chart of the Coast of Wales in St George's Channel and that of Milford Haven by Lewis Morris; The River Clyde and Glasgow by John Watt; and the Observation by Trinity House Pilots and Surveyors of the Downs covering the coast of Kent and the Goodwin Sands, as well as charts by other well-known European chart-makers, such as the magnificent example of the Coast of England from Dover to the Isle of Wight showing the Cinque Ports by Lucas Janszoon Wagenaer that dates from 1583.

The author has researched maritime archives including the Admiralty Library, the National Maritime Museum, the Pepys Library, the UK Hydrographic Office, and the National Archives to reveal their unseen nautical records and portray the development of the sea chart.

Review:

The book takes the reader on a tour of the British Isles. The pages are large enough to show the finer details of the maps. All in all, a lovely piece of work which would make a great gift for a seafarer. * Nautilus Telegraph * Travelling the ports, harbours, dockyards, naval bases and beaches that fringe these isles, this hardback shows off a beautiful collection of charts. Also contains interesting details on maritime history and the story of charting and surveying. * Lifeboat * This beautiful book, packed with wonderful sea charts going back to the days when cartographers were artists as much as surveyors, is no mere coffee table book, but an important study of our maritime heritage. * Pembrokeshire Life * Showcases a collection of charts and a wealth of information about Britain's maritime history. * Western Telegraph *
