Carte Du Port Fowey Ou Foy : Capt. G.Collins / J.N.Bellin

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Captain Greeenville Collins "Coasting Pilot", despite its critics, was very influential. This is a scarce French copy of Collins's chart produced by Jacques Nicolas Bellin in Paris, one of 17 of the more localised and detailed charts in the atlas. With an inset of Penzance and Mounts Bay, the focus of the chart is on the approaches to Fowey and the estuary. For no apparent reason the chart has been laid down on archival mounting card, otherwise fine.
