Despite the popularity of the "Flambeau De La Mer", the French pilot book in which this attractive woodcut chart of Plymouth appeared, this is a rare and unusual item. Depth soundings are marked on this chart which would have been used a general guide or instruction for smaller vessels. "Cadevater" Catwater, "Saltache," Saltash are shown along with other parts of the waters around Plymouth. Drake's Island is shown as "DRAC". Chart is lightly age toned.
