Captain Greenville Collins' "Coasting Pilot" was the first systematic survey of the British coastline, and the first sea atlas produced in London from original surveys. Collins was appointed to the task by Charles II in 1681 and published his first edition in 1693. The charts were reissued, with little updating, until 1792. This chart of the Firth of Forth has a large decorative dedication to the Lord Chancellor of Scotland. This is a fine and attractive example - an early printing demonstrating the quality of the engraving evident in early editions, and not clear in the many later printings. This fine chart extends from St. Andrews to Queensferry and eastwards to Dunbar. A large cartouche at top left is decorated with banners, weaponry, mermaids and sea creatures.
