A fine and scarce sea chart of St. Augustin’s (Anantson̈o) and Tullea (Toliara) bays, amongst the finest anchorages on the west coast of Madagascar, published by the leading chartmakers of Laurie & Whittle.
Very rare – the first edition of Captain William Nichelson’s masterly large-format sea chart of St. Augustin’s Bay, Madagascar, a key harbour on the Mozambique Channel, along the route between Europe and India, first issued in the 1767 edition of William Herbert’s important atlas, ‘A New Directory for the East Indies’.
8°, 300 pp. with charts, interleaved colour folding map, contemporary black calf spine with gilt lettering and decoration with black cloth boards (two pages with tiny loss of paper in white margins, old library stamps on the title page, minor staining and foxing, small holes in the binding).
