Description

Later edition of Hendrick Doncker's sea chart of the British Isles, with the date 1665 removed from the title.

Striking sea chart of the British Isles, showing north oriented to the right and embellished by decorative cartouches, coats of arms and two decorative compass roses. Two smaller compass roses show north with the magnetic variation. The map extends to include the English Chanel and coastline of Normandy and identifies soundings, sand bars, fishing banks and navigational hazards. A nice example of this scarce chart.

"Hendrick Doncker became one of the most active of the marine atlas and chart publishers in Amsterdam in the second half of the seventeenth century. He was the first to follow Arnold Colom with a comprehensive sea atlas" -- Burden.
