Fowey & Mounts-Bay Is Most Humbly Presented And Dedicated To The Right Reverend  : G. Collins

Captain Greenvile Collins' "Great Britain's Coasting Pilot", in which this chart of Fowey and an inset of Mounts Bay 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 were reissued, with very little updating, until as late as 1792. The chart is dedicated to Jonathan Lord Bishop of Bristol in the decorative title cartouche. An attractive example.
