Read the full Chart History here: 

This is an early state of an important chart drawn for publication in the Atlantic Neptune folio. Des Barres compiled and published the chart in November 1776, but it is likely that the surveys it was based on were completed up to two years earlier when Holland and his team were working in the area.  There is no detail or reference of military positions and fortifications. The chart is very plain, without color, and places an emphasis on the features of the land rather than on navigation, although some depth soundings are included.
