Description  
‘Carte maritime de l'Angleterre depuis les Sorlingues jusques à Portland’ is a beautiful hand-coloured engraved maritime chart. Originally it would have been on two sheets but these were joined to create a fine masterpiece. The engraving depicts Scilly Isles to Portland in the English Channel and Bideford in the Bristol Channel. It also shows all ports on the coast as well as the Rivers and inlets. There is an inset map of Scilly Isles and inset views of Lands End, Falmouth and Portland, and arms of the Earl of Portland, allegorical figures and exquisite ships.
