An uncommon chart depicting two inlets in western Nova Scotia with soundings and anchorages. These inlets are a part of the Bay of Fundy near New Brunswick. Sailing directions are contained in the large, oval title cartouche.
A good impression on a thick sheet of paper. There are some damp stains and tissue repairs in the upper margin, slightly encroaching into the map.
