The Map & Chart Collections
Maps and Charts
This collection of charts includes some of the most significant maps and charts of the
Bermuda Islands ever produced.
Having lost her mainland American colonies, Britain was desperate to maintain a post
in the mid-Atlantic which would be the gateway to both the Caribbean and mainland America.
From 1776 onward, Bermuda played this role. The maps and charts here include a mix of
published and previously unseen surveys of the Bermuda coastlines and include the colossal
Thomas Hurd survey of 1788-1797.
