Further Information

This beautifully presented survey of Great Sound in Bermuda, made by P. Parker, complements the one of the north coast of Pembroke from Spanish Point to Bailys Bay (see A606).  Both surveys were completed by Parker within days of each other.  This survey includes the hand-written inscription; 'The outlines from Lempriere's Chart, published 1810.  The soundings in Stag Passage are at high water.  Those in Great Sound low water.  June 3rd 1823'. 

The survey includes a beautiful water-colour inset of a ship in distress off the treacherous reefs which surround the island and which accounted for the loss of over 20 ships since the Islands were first discovered and is a salient reminder of the perils facing any seamen choosing to sail these waters. The stern of the ship bears the author's name 'P. Parker 1823'.
