Published in 1839 with small corrections to 1878, this 142 year old original British Admiralty sea chart includes wonderful script around the title and surveyors name. It has not been used for navigation but does have age related ‘ghosting’ due to storage. This is the 3rd chart of the set. Below the title is a hand stamp showing that Bucknall Steamship Lines. Limited are the owners.
