click here to view a large version in a separate window

Blueback Azores chart for mariners, published at No. 114, The Minories, a street long associated with chartselling. Several landfalls are well exhibited. There are four detailed inset charts of the approaches to the islands. This finely engraved chart was reportedly sold with strong blue paper, hence the expression often applied to charts of this genre: 'Blueback'. Used and with repairs to old tears but an acceptable example of a rare chart.
