Captain Greenvile Collins' "Coasting Pilot", in which this detailed chart of Plymouth Sound was published, 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 proved immensely popular and were reissued late into the next century. This is the second state of Collins' chart of Plymouth with the plate number 16 at upper left (a first state is known, also published in 1693, of the chart without the plate number). The dedication appears in a large, central cartouche decorated with allegorical figures and imagery of the sea. Sounding depths, sandbanks and navigational aids are clear and considerable "land" detail is also given - the citadel at Plymouth is depicted in pictorial form. An inset at the right of the page shows Salcombe.
