An Excellent Sea Chart of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and East and West "New Jarsey" from The English Pilot

    [The English Pilot]. [John Thornton and William Fisher]. Virginia, Maryland Pennsylvania, East and West New Jarsey. [London]: William Tower & Thos. Page, [n.d., ca. 1743]. Taken from a later edition (probably fourth) of The English Pilot, one of the most important (and rarest) navigational works from the eighteenth-century. Approximately 24 x 33.5 inches. Some toning, dampstaining, several creases and small tears or chips, tape repairs to verso. Ink marking on verso, and faint ink marking at lower margin, lower margin trimmed a bit unevenly, small chip from lower right corner. Mounted with four pieces of tape onto a cardboard sheet. Still, a very good copy of this very rare chart. The English Pilot went through six editions from 1755 until 1794, and five or fewer of copies of each edition are known to be extant.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
