Further Information

This historic chart of the coastline of Casco Bay which reaches from Portland Sound up to Rogers Bay is full of detail, both hydrographic and geographic. It was printed and published by Joseph Frederick Wallet Des Barres for inclusion in his magnificent 1777 publication 'The Atlantic Neptune' which was prepared for the British Admiralty in order to assist in the safe passage of His Majesty's Navy up and down the North American sea board. The original land survey for this chart is likely to have been undertaken by teams of surveyors working for Samuel Holland, the Surveyor General for the Northern District of America. Des Barres will, likely, have drawn the hydrographic information from elsewhere.
