Sailing Direction for the Coast and Harbours of North America, comprehending the entire navigation from Nova Scotia to the Gulf of Florida
Blachford and Imray, London 1845 - (8 x 5 1/8 inches). [2], xiii, [1], 3-142pp. (Trimmed close at the lower margin). Modern brown cloth. Rare work of sailing directions for North American waters. A rare compilation for the navigator sailing American waters, derived from the surveys of Des Barres, Holland, Lockwood, Demayne, Monteath, and others. Michael Blachford, the successor of the family chartmaking business begun by Robert Blachford (1804-1835), operated from 1835-1846, before being bought out by his partner James Imray. Various issues (with varying pagination) of these sailing directions were published as early as 1836; the present undated example includes a footnote on page vii dated 1844, suggesting the 1845 publication date. OCLC cites but two pre-1846 examples in North American libraries (New York Public and Boston Public). Cf. Sabin 5665 (1836 edition of 75 pages) and 5666 (1842 edition of 95pp.). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
