Despite the popularity of the "Flambeau De La Mer", the French pilot book in which this attractive woodcut chart of Dartmouth appeared, this is a rare and unusual item. Sandbanks, depth soundings and so on are marked on this chart which would have been used a general guide or instruction for smaller vessels. Chart is lightly age toned.
