This beautifully presented survey of the coastline from Spanish Point to Bailys bay in Bermuda complements a second survey of Great Sound (see A605). This survey includes the hand-written inscription; 'The outlines are copied from the chart of C Lempriere, improved by Laurie & Whittle, 1810'...'The soundings taken at low water. Morn 11 days old'. It is reasonable to assume that this survey was completed within days of the survey of Great Sound - June 23rd 1823.
As with the Great Sound survey, a beautiful water-colour inset of a sailing vessel is included, but unlike the one depicted on the Great Sound chart this ship is sailing relatively calm waters. Once again, the stern of the ship bears the author's name 'P. Parker 1823'.
