This detailed map of the English Channel is a fine example of the stark style that came into vogue at the beginning of the eighteenth century. The title is simply engraved at top flanked by a key on the left and distance scales on the right. The chart provides excellent navigational information including the location of banks, rocks and shoals, soundings, and ports.
Original color with a few minor spots.
