Untitled - Land's End And The Isles Of Scilly.  Dedication "To The Honourable Go : G. Collins

An attractive chart of the Isles of Scilly, with large vignettes top right and lower left, from Captain Greenvile Collins' "Coasting Pilot", which 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 little updating, until 1792. 'King James Bank' was altered to 'Collins Banck' following the Glorious Revolution of 1688, when James was deposed. The corrected form appears in the first edition of the atlas, in 1693. This chart, covered with rhumb lines and soundings, shows the waters off Land's End and the Scillies, and includes the feature at 15 fathoms "Collins Banck".
