A112 - A chart of the harbour of Boston
This is a beautiful example of a first state of this hugely significant chart of the harbour of Boston. J.F.W. Des Barres himself acknowledges that it was composed from different surveys, but principally from that taken in 1769 by Mr George Callender, late Master of His Majesty's ship Romney (see Heritage Chart A107). The chart presented here is a two sheet edition which excludes the Nautical Remarks and Directions included on other editions (see Heritage Charts A102).
