A Correct Chart Of The Channell Between England & France ... : Mount & Page / G.Grierson

The full title of this magnificent and rare chart reads "A Correct Chart Of The Channell Between England & France From The Newest And Best Surveys With The Flowing Of The Tides & Setting Of The Current As Observed By Dr. Ed. Halley By His Mties. Comand. Dublin. Printed By Geo. Grierson In Essex Street." Mount and Page published their chart of the channel in 1715 and, like many other London chart and map publications of the period, was soon pirated in a new engraving of a few years later by the renowned Dublin copyist and publisher, George Grierson. The original Mount and Page chart is rarely seen and we have only found one other record of this version, in a British Library composite collection. The chart includes a detailed inset of the Scilly Isles at lower left as well as an inset of the Isle of Wight. The survey work for Mount and Page was commissioned by William III in the early years of the eighteenth century and included much detail - sandbanks, rhumb lines and tidal flows are all carefully and scientifically (as was the spirit of the age, with the accreditation of Halley's involvement taken from the original) delineated. Textual notes and advertisements provide further elements of interest. One old tear and minor defects expertly repaired but nevertheless a very attractive example of an interesting and decorative chart.
